Alan Menken, "Beauty and the Beast"
Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci
This is a classic and one that in many ways is very much impressed in every human's soul. Beauty and the Beast is essentially a story of conversion. Belle is a girl who is dissatisfied with life in a small provincial French town, constantly trying to fend off the misplaced "affections" of conceited Gaston. The Beast is a prince who was placed under a spell because he could not love. The main technical challenge is to carry the double melody which will be presented in different sectors of the fingerboard. The way to achieve the necessary swiftness is by using the whole playing apparatus and practice each set of double stops slowly and separately until mastered as a self standing unit. Only then will you incorporate the set in the music.
