Noten für BlasorchesterFar Away Star (Allt under himmelens fäste)
Johan Svendsen wrote several great adaptions of folk music for strings. These are all characterized by his tasteful harmonics. Far Away Star is one of the two Swedish folk songs published as op. 27 for strings in 1878. It is important to have in mind the original string version when interpreting this instrumentation for wind instruments. This is particular important in terms of timbre and character.
