I. River Hymn, II. Waltz of the Hills, III. Barn Dance
By Bob Phillips
Sound Innovations for Strings
Beautiful, original melodies abound in all sections, but the violas and cellos really get a chance to shine in this suite comprised of three movements: "River Hymn," "Waltz of the Hills," and "Barn Dance." In C Major, this piece is ideal to teach F and C natural. The movements are brief and can be performed individually or as a suite. Remaining true to the early Americana feel of the piece, the last movement is an upbeat, old-timey tune! Correlates to Sound Innovations Book 2, Level 2.
