Final Countdown – Cello Ensemble Music – Europe

The 1986 smash hit and worldwide Number 1, ‘The Final Countdown’ by Sweden’s Europe. This arrangement for cello quartet (with optional double bass) is perfect for school groups and professional ensembles. The Cello 1 part has tenor clef (approx Grade 6 standard), but has an ossia part underneath an octave lower in bass clef making the whole ensemble playable by grade 5 and under. There are challenges in most parts, and the double bass part sounds great played on electric bass (just ask a drummer to join you for a full rock band effect). Arranged by professional cellist, arranger and teacher Dury Loveridge, this is a tried and tested arrangement.
