72 Note Sankyo Orpheus Movement

Tune Description

This movement is a German-style movement.

Here is Beethoven at his best. This particular arrangement has some unusual coloring.

Let's begin with part one. Here, we hear the usual melody with some accompanying chords. Most of the time folks hear this on the smaller 18-note movement. Now however, Sankyo has arranged this song for 50-note and (in this case) 72-note movements as well.

Things really become quite interesting by the time you get to parts two and three. For one thing, part two plays the second theme which (as far as I know) has never been arranged for an 18-note movement. The music is exquisite.

I’ll admit the 50-note version has a short triplet section in part three that I like very much. However, this in no way takes away from the beauty of this 72-note arrangement. It simply means this arrangement has a different approach to the melodic line.

The ending on the 72-note arrangement is quite surprising but very nice, and fits well.

I would finally sum up this description by saying this particular musical arrangement makes the music sound more like the guitar than the piano (for which the piece was originally written).


72 Note Movement

This kind of Sankyo movement plays two or three tunes (or parts) and is made in Japan. Playing time is usually about 6 minutes. There are 72 notes (or "teeth") on the comb. There is a lot of bass sound in the comb, and the arrangements are usually very spectacular in nature. Our in-house comb machine and Rick's expertise result in Bell-Like Tuning unrivalled in new movements for decades.
