Pep up your day with syncopation, controlled glissandos and jittery tremolos. Take a sip and dance the java jive using soli phrases passed between instruments.
Each instrument takes the spotlight in a movement of this engaging suite.
I. Violarific – The alto clef shines in 6/8 through resonant repeated viola notes over flowing accompaniment.
II. Celloha – Upper strings lay down a tropical pizzicato beat under a swaying cello melody.
III. BASS-ic-al-ly – The growly bass steals the show against a counterpoint of jazzy rests, accents and pizzicato.
IV. Violinstinct – Violins move to center stage in a perpetual-motion treat reminiscent of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos.
’Twas the Cat
This sinuous feline twists, turns and scampers across the strings, meowing as she navigates a challenging time-signature change.
