March of the Wood Elves
By Doug Spata
Highland/Etling String Orchestra
Conductor Score & Parts
A mysterious pizzicato pulse sets the tone in this sly scherzo while shadowy melodies evoke the wood elves. Dynamics ebb and flow throughout before the piece builds to its conclusion. With a technical focus on two-note slurs and G string notes, this piece provides some exciting technical challenges for young players, but students and orchestras will be drawn to the dramatic style and mischievous melodies.
