March of the Shadows - Score only by Brian Balmages. For string orchestra. FJH Developing Strings. Score only. Full set (score and parts) also available: ST6257. Grade 2. Score only. Duration 1:45. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6257S).
Dark, sinister and fun -- these words describe this wonderfully inventive piece that paints a picture of shadows marching in unison through hallways, dark corners, and anywhere else the imagination would like to go. Designed to introduce students to Eb and Bb in a simple setting, the work makes wonderful use of mild dissonance as the shadows come to life. Clever!
