Highland/Etling Strictly Strings
Conductor Score & Parts
This vigorous original work cleverly uses open strings, plus only the first notes learned on the D and A strings, to evoke the sometimes charming, sometimes rough world of the sailor at sea. Open double stops reflect the raw power of the ocean waves. Mostly in E Dorian and Aeolian, this modal work has a sophisticated sound that's very easy to play for beginning strings.
