Dance for String Quartet and Orchestra

Program Notes

Dance for String Quartet and Orchestra features the chamber ensemble leading the orchestra through contrapuntal passages and chromatic textures while alternating between two roles: a chamber ensemble performing a concerto grosso (quartet vs. orchestra), and four soloists leading their independent sections (section vs. section).

I excerpted this composition, originally the second movement of my Symphony No.3 in E Minor: Concert in Three Acts, and reduced its instrumentation to make it available to more ensembles and help it engage a wider audience.

10 minutes | Violin I & II, Viola, Cello + 3.3.3.3 / 4.3.3.1 / Timp. 2 perc. Harp / Strings | 2016
Excerpted from Symphony No.3 in E Minor: Concert in Three Acts
