String orchestra - Level 4
Composed by Soon Hee Newbold. Arranged by Soon Hee Newbold. String Orchestra. FJH String Orchestra. Score and set of parts. Duration 4 minutes, 24 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6049).

Item Number: FJ.ST6049

This highly programmatic work is based on the story of Odysseus and his encounters with the Lotus Eaters, the Cyclops, the Sorceress Circe, and the enchanting Sirens among others.
Multiple effects include col legno, mutes, and harmonics (which are all explained in detail in the performance notes). The incredible symphonic nature of the entire work gives your orchestra a huge sound without the need for any winds or percussion. Strongly consider this powerful new work!

    I find this piece to be very well constructed, but it's very repetitive and boring actually. If I were in the audience I would be impatiently checking my watch. Not her best piece for sure.

    Very fun piece to play and very enjoyable! I gave it to my middle school class and they loved it. I must say, this piece sounds very professional. And no, it does not sound like Lord of the Rings. I love it!
