String Orchestra
Originally for piano, this lyric work is a shining presentation of Price’s signature style. The first statement is in G Major, then modulates to A major. Although short, the piece requires mature musicality, secure shifting and vibrato from your ensemble, with delicate dynamics and rubato. There are brief solos for violin and cello.
