Written in 1984 by English composer Simon Jeffes (1949-1997), Music for a Found Harmonium has been described as "minimalist folk music," and has been recorded by groups ranging from contemporary music ensembles to Irish folk bands. It has been used in movies, and is widely recognized for its appearance in the soundtrack to the popular Napoleon Dynamite. In this arrangement, the quirky but energetic melody is introduced by the violas and celli, and is later echoed and elaborated by the violins. Joyful rhythmic figures, challenging accents, syncopations, and a driving bass line all punctuate the accompaniment throughout the piece. Here's a chance for the orchestra to explore a fascinating musical style while stretching their technique in an exuberant work that is bound to bring the audience to its feet.
