The Firebird Ballet (part 2)

Uploaded on Sep 14, 2016

This is the second installment of The Firebird by Igor Stravinsky. This contains "The Dance of the Firebird" through rehearsal mark 21 (less the 1/8 note pickup in the piccolo clarinet). Part 3 will start with rehearsal mark 21 with the 1/8th note pickup and commence shortly with "Capture of the Firebird by Prince Igor" (rehearsal mark 22). The 5 measures between 21 and 22 seem to fit with neither of the surrounding themes but rather is an intro to the next scene. There are a several reasons I am splitting this up into so many parts: 1 - The instrumentation makes transcribing this difficult due to the many changes (for example between 1 cello line and 6). 2 - When the file gets to a certain size Musescore slows WAY down and it takes forever to enter the next note. This is supposed to be improved in Musescore 3 if you haven't seen what the programmers are working on. 3 - This is a very long piece and I want a sense of accomplishment. It will probably take me almost a month to put out the entire ballet. You can always make it an album if you like, but you get to figure out how to fix the instrumentation that will make it work. I have split the piece where there is a pause written into the music at the end of each part.
