Mars from The Planets

Gustav Holst Arranged by Sandra Dackow
Grade: 4

Maintaining the integrity of the original, this upper intermediate arrangement will excite players with driving rhythms and explosive force. It is best approached by players with solid foundation in extensions and able to deal with many accidentals and tonal ambiguity. To succeed, this arrangement requires enough players for sustained divisi in all sections, including violas and basses. While the parts do not always require divisi, they are written throughout on two staves for consistency, and conductors can move players to certain lines to help balance. A violin III part is included, helping to double the divided viola part frequently, but is not a true substitute for the violas. A rehearsal piano part is also included for support, but not intended for performance.
