Don Quixote (Minkus) Act I Scene Of Kitri & Basil

March 20, 2018, 11:39 AM · Hi,
Anyone who watched 2018 winter olympic game ladies figure staking? The music Zagitova used was Don quixote.

I found the piano score of the piece, is there a violin sheet music somewhere?

Thanks.

March 20, 2018, 12:16 PM · Thanks for the reply. But if you listen to the audio on youtube, it sounds like much lower, by maybe one octave?
March 20, 2018, 2:15 PM · Well Yes! It's a cello solo, isn't it. You could actually play it on a violin (or viola) an octave lower than written.
March 20, 2018, 3:26 PM · I love what David Greene wrote about Minkus--he could write music by the yard.
March 21, 2018, 12:20 AM · Andrew Victor: This is NOT Strauss's tone poem for cello and orchestra. It's a ballet by Minkus.

I was momentarily confused as well, because I'm playing Don Quixote this weekend and the piano score above didn't look at all familiar.
