* wind and percussion parts are optional

Sarikiz, based in part on Kazakh folk melodies, is scored for solo violin and strings with optional single woodwind, timpani & percussion. The two percussion instruments in the score are Kazakh in origin; the dabyl is a hand drum while kepshek is a small frame drum with jingles. Any suitable hand drum may be substituted for the former while the kepshek part may be played on a tambourine.
