The Dance (from ms. 31-99 and from 184-221) should have a “waltz” feel. In order to achieve the best style, as well as balance, feel free to use the cues to mix and match the voices. The Serenade (from ms. 100-175) should be molto sostenuto throughout. Again, feel free to mix and match voices using the cues. A beautiful, blending, sustaining sound is most important here. At the end of the
Serenade (m. 175) if you wish, feel free for the trumpet soloist to play a short ab lib cadenza. (See text box in the full score for instructions.) Regarding the tempos: the Dance should work well from about 85-90 m.m. The ideal would be about 90 m.m. Faster tempos feel rushed.
