String Orchestra Conductor Score & Parts


      Canyon Sunset


Scored in G major, this original in ABA form paints a convincing picture of twilight time in the old American West. The optional percussion part for temple blocks imitates the sound of horse’s hooves in the A segments, and divisi 1st Violin and cello parts in the B section add harmonic depth and drama. The piece ends with a gradual diminuendo and ritard before the final pianissimo chord is played. Duration 2:30.
