Concert Piece for Strings

DESCRIPTION

for String Orchestra

An expressive and quiet opening leads to a series of accelerations and progressively more active rhythms that culminates with new material in an emotional, somber ending. The work is not demanding technically, but the difficulty lies in maintaining intensity for its duration of 18 minutes.
