This arrangement of Sakura, Sakura for string orchestra captures the haunting sentiment of the melody using koto-like pizzicato lines and pentatonic harmonies. Contrasting legato lines accompany an original melody in the middle section, which is in a major key and brings a brighter colour to the work before the plaintive original melody is heard again at the end of the work.
This arrangement is for high school string orchestra. Graded as a Level 3 piece, it requires the double bass section to play in 5th position and requires some vibrato in all sections.
