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.

    My favorite piece ever! Easy to get stuck in your head but hard to sing. The fast parts are challenging as well as the shift up into seventh position. But all is well worth it when performed!

    The andante part at the beginning is amazing. But I love the fast allegro part. It is challenging, but not too much.
