William E. Moats
“At The Fair” was conceived as a somewhat light-hearted dance using traditional forms and harmonies. Musicians can play most of the piece in first position. Playing some passages in a higher position will significantly improve the intonation and facility. All sections except the contrabass play portions of the melody. “At The Fair” runs a little over three and a half minutes at the suggested tempo. The upper cello part requires being able to play a few notes above first position, for example. The piece is in the key of D and G.
