This lovely original ballad for strings sounds like it was based on a traditional folk song. Carl Strommen has a way of writing memorable melodies and lush harmonies. Lonestar sounds like an American cowboy song, and will stretch the musicianship of your young students.
The plaintive opening in Violin 1 (optional solo) then joined with Violin 2 (optional solo) at m. 9 suggests an early morning sunrise on the vast Western prairie. With each new section, the sun slowly emerges and rises in full glory at m. 41. The performance of Lonestar will be most effective when played broadly, with expression, observing all dynamics and tempo changes. To present this musical portrait" more clearly, the conductor is encouraged to take advantage of the interpretive opportunities that Lonestar provides. For more information, please visit
