Jean Berger's Short Overture For Strings (2 Violins, Viola, Cello, Bass).
This score takes approximately 5 minutes to perform. It was written with the purpose of enlarging the repertoire of string music that - while not without challenge- could yet be played and performed by an amateur group. The emphasis is on the word 'amateur'. Hence all dynamic and tempo indications ought to be interpreted flexibly and should be adapted to the needs and the level of the technical proficiency nof the performing ensemble.
