Celtica (for Solo Violin and String Orchestra) by Brian Balmages. For string orchestra. Orchestra. FJH Beginning Strings. Full set (score and parts). Score only also available: ST6107S. Grade 1 (2/4). Score and set of parts. Duration 3 minutes, 20 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6107).
Celtica was conceived as a piece for young orchestras that wish to feature an advanced violinist within the orchestra or invite a guest soloist. The work finds its inspiration in the beautiful, lyrical lines and powerful, driving rhythms of Celtic music. The soloist is encouraged to add appropriate embellishments for a more authentic feel. Two solo parts are included - an easier part for the many orchestras that would like to feature their young star, and an advanced part for orchestras that wish to invite a guest artist. The work was premiered by the Jeffers Hill Elementary Advanced Orchestra with Soon Hee Newbold on violin.
