This chamber edition of Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony was first performed in 2017, in a sold out performance of "Music in Miniature", a project with Rep Orchestra and Yellow Arch Studios.
Written for individual woodwinds, a small brass section, timpanist and a small string section, this new reduction enables chamber ensembles to explore Tchaikovsky's masterpiece.
• Strings: this arrangement can be performed with a quintet up to a full chamber orchestra section.
