The Meditation from Massenet's opera Thaïs has long been a popular separate concert work. It is striking for its expressive violin solo and quiet rapture, a mood of tender serenity. This arrangement for 12 players is a faithful reduction of the original orchestral score. It can be played with single strings or more players if preferred, with the solo violin part unchanged.
Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, Timpani, Harp, Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass
