English.

Energetic and "hard-driving" best describe this tour de force for high school orchestra. Two solo violins and a solo viola introduce this piece through a haunting, lyrical theme. The theme is subsequently taken up by the entire orchestra and expanded, gradually morphing into a fast and frenetic second theme that is aggressive and virtuosic in nature. This second theme is developed in an equally vigorous pizzicato section. The two themes are then heard at the same time, each vying for attention. The pace slackens momentarily before a wildly frantic coda closes the piece. Full of color and intriguing tonalities, this highly original work gives every section of the mature string orchestra a chance to shine. This title is available in SmartMusic.

  • March 21, 2007 Lovely work.

    This may just be Meyer's best piece. Beautifully composed and has an eerie feeling to it. Exhilarating for musicians to play towards the middle sections of the piece. Possible for advanced middle school students. Extremely energetic but needs lots of practice to completely master. Both audience and musicians adore...

    this music.

  • January 05, 2007 THE BEST SONG EVER FOR STRING ORCHESTRA!

    This piece was amazing!!! It was a bit difficult but everyone agreed that it was our best song. I would definately recommend it to 8th and 9th grade orchestras.
