Celtic Force composed by Traditional. Arranged by Steve Frackenpohl. For string orchestra (88555). Concert String Orchestra Series. Grade 3. Score and set of parts. Duration 3 minutes. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.9991).
This highly-charged medley contains four Irish fiddle tunes arranged in the Celtic rock style that's so popular with audiences today. The nonstop eighth notes, modal scales and driving rhythms will be exciting for all. Double stops should be played non-divisi when possible, and Frackenpohl suggests that the bass line will sound best if some basses play pizzicato instead of arco. Duration 3:00.
