Orchestra Cello, Contrabass, Piano, Viola, Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3 (Viola T.C.) - 1.5
Composed by Alan Lee Silva. SWS FS. First-Plus String Orchestra (FAS). Beginning softly and elegantly in E minor, Northern Lights sets a mysterious tone, featuring a dramatic legato violin melody (mm. 3-4) over a root-fifth ostinato pattern in the piano and pizzicato second violins. The A-melody alternates between the violin. Score and parts. With Standard notation. Duration 2 minutes, 51 seconds. Carl Fischer #FAS103. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.FAS103).

Item Number: CF.FAS103

ISBN 9781491146446. 9 x 12 inches. Key: G major.

Featuring a lovely and appropriate use of pizzicato with optional piano under the soloist opening section, Northern Lights is evocative, melodically distinguished, and cleverly scored to help a young orchestra sound its best. The natural minor of the beginning melody contrasts nicely with the grander, major mode theme introduced later, and this contrast is maintained throughout this very effective piece.
