Bedřich Smetana - Die Moldau

Grand Illusions 20 / Muro Box 20
23/08/2021 16:35

This is a classical piece from Smetana, a Czech composer. This piece was created to evoke the sounds of one of Bohemia's great rivers.
I did not arrange this piece by myself. I got it from a music roll I bought over 20 years ago. It was printed by a german company (as all the instructions were in german). I wanted to share it with the rest of the community here, because it's really well arranged.

Hey! It looks like this melody can be played offline on a 20 note paper strip music box!

All you need to do is:

  1. Get a 20 note DIY Music Box Kit from our online store page if you don't have one
  2. Export the melody to PDF with paper strips, print it out and cut with scissors. Make sure to use the right paper size and set you printer scale to 100%, otherwise the size won't match. It's better when paper strips are thick, so if you are going to use thin office paper, we recommend you to glue two or three layers together. Another option is to laminate paper strips with a transparent duct tape
  3. Punch holes with a tool from the music box kit
  4. Enjoy your favorite melody playing on a real music box!
