Item Number: AP.20797

Using only the notes of the D major scale, Richard Meyer has fashioned a medieval-sounding piece that is sure to fascinate your beginning string students. The minor key, modal harmonies and driving rhythms give this piece a very mature sound. The aggressive main theme is introduced by violins and violas, with cello and bass in counterpoint. The theme later returns in canon, with cellos and basses being chased (hunted) by the violins and violas. Very dramatic from start to finish! This title is available in SmartMusic.

  • December 13, 2009 Great piece!

    This is a great piece, I really like the rythem and patterns in the cello line and how all the parts fit together. It's a piece requiring a good orchestra and practice, but none of the techneiques or notes are all that difficult. I'm a seventh grader, I...

    started playing last year, and even though I don't usually like really rythmic music, this is one of the best pieces I've played.
