August Lanner

Die Orientalen, Walzer, Op. 26

Arr. CPE Strauss

00:00 / 08:16

My arrangement from the first edition piano score of this waltz by August Lanner.

It was first performed on the 11th June 1855 in the Bierhalle Fünfhaus.

He usually only scored for two percussionists but, given the title, I have put cymbals and triangle in the introduction. I'm sure some back desk strings would have risen to the challenge.
