String Orchestra Music Recordings

The string orchestra is an ensemble consisting solely of the string section of a regular orchestra. As in regular orchestra, their size and set-up may vary: they can be chamber orchestras (with as little as 12 performers in a 4.3.2.2.1 arrangement) or 60-piece orchestras, mainly used for big scale works (such as film music or pop arrangements). Music written for quartet, quintet, or sextets may be arranged for string orchestra, as well as pieces originally conceived for ensembles employing woodwind instruments.
