General Guidelines for all Orchestras
Salute to Mancini (Student Recording) Please note that the tempos in this recording are a bit too fast overall. Listen to this original of the Peter Gunn theme in particular for a better sense of it - Peter Gunn Theme
Lord of the Rings (MIDI playback) There is no live recording that I can find so far, but you might find this MIDI playback helpful. If we get to record it this year, it might be the first recording ever made of this particular string orchestra arrangement!
Barber String Quartet in B minor, Op 11 You can find dozens of recordings of the "Adagio for Strings" the string orchestra version - so take some time to listen to the whole quartet as it was originally set!
Ani Ma'Amin Might be useful to play along with...
Shostakovitch 8th String Quartet (The Beethoven Quartet) Thirteen of Shostakovitch's fifteen string quartets were premired by "The Beethoven Quartet". This recording is of the premire of the 8th, recorded on October 2, 1960 in Leningrad (St. Petersburg). It's not a perfect recording but just listen and you will hear why Shostakovitch continued to have his quartets premired by the Beethoven Quartet.
