Morning – Grade II
Dignity, peace, and beauty paint a scenic picture at the dawn of a new day. Explore subtle swells and driving harmonic textures with Morning. Allow peace and tranquility to fill the soundscape through the contour of chamber passages and nuance that is truly unique for string orchestra.
Morning is a slow piece by nature, allowing a moment of breath in an already exciting concert program. Tapestry and textural painting is important as artists, even in sound. While technically obtainable, broaden your ensemble’s style with Morning. Each piece seeks and yearns for the balance of each individual part toward the common goal of expressing content and the radiant beauty of the sun’s early haze. This selection will highlight your string ensemble’s uniform tone and direction of phrasing in the style of a chamber group.
