This high-energy piece will have your players rising to the challenge. The unpredictable Black Sea is depicted with meter changes, col legno, pizzicato and more. It's dramatic but not overly difficult. Brief interludes in 7/8 are actually a relatively easy 3+2+2 and the dynamic changes and accents are a blast to play.
