Sibelius – Karelia Suite - Two Movements for 6-part Trombone Ensemble & Organ

Karelia Suite, Opus 11 is a concert suite taken from an 11-movement work that Sibelius composed using Finnish folk music.

The two selections in this arrangement are the Intermezzo and Alla Marcia and have a “naive” peasant feel to them with their simplicity. Karelia was one of the composer's favorite parts of Finland. Intermezzo is a bouncy march in Allegro as is the Alla Marcia which has a few key change surprises, adding a real kick to the movement.

All parts are in bass clef and the parts are appropriate for moderately advanced performers.

This arrangement is about 9 minutes in length.
