      Spirited Voyage (Scherzo For Strings)


A positive spirit, joyful energy, and a carefree attitude best describe this scherzo! All sections have a lot of action and musical energy utilizing two distinct melodic themes. The opening and primary spirited theme are coupled with an emotional but gorgeous second melody reminiscent of American fiddling ballads. This section features solos for the viola and viola section as well as for violin, cello, and bass. With big sweeping cinematic moments followed by an upbeat and spirited ending, this piece promises to be a unique program choice as an opener or closer. Duration 5:55.
