Rimsky-Korsakov Flight of the Bumblebee Arranged for 9-12 Celli

Arranged by Hans Erik Deckert

Title: Flight of the Bumblebee (for 9-12 Celli)
Composer: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Instrument: Violoncello
Edited By: Hans Erik Deckert
Instrumentation: Violoncello Ensemble
Pages: 7 for the score and 10 for the violoncello parts

Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee works perfectly as an encore. The solo cello is the original cello part, while eight other celli perform the accompaniment. For showcasing more than one person, the solo voice could be played by multiple celli. For example, in an ensemble of 12 celli, 4 celli can perform the solo part, which creates an impressive effect.
