Dotonbori Dash
Alan Lee Silva

Dotonbori Dash
Dotonbori Dash is a tour-de-force for advancing string orchestras. It employs aspects of Japanese music and in certain parts, the lower strings emulate the sound of taiko drums. This work glides along smoothly in Alan Lee Silva’s usual style, but this has an extra dramatic flair to it. It is an exciting departure for this composer and one we are so very pleased to present to you.

Orange Moon
Yukiko Nishimura

Orange Moon
Best described as a slow tango, this passionate composition shows off all of Yukiko Nishimura's skills as a composer. Evocative and heartfelt, Orange Moon’s harmonies are dense and fresh, flush with the romantic nature of the piece. What an incredible addition to the more advanced ensemble’s repertoire.

Orientale (from Novelettes, Op. 15)
Alexander Glazunov, arranged by Deborah Baker Monday

Orientale
Originally written for string quartet, this fantastic characteristic piece from Glazunov is a welcome addition to the string orchestra repertoire, as arranged by Deborah Baker Monday. Well-suited for the more advanced ensemble, it contains excellent musical opportunities and the chance to play the music of a prominent Russian composer. Deborah's setting stays very true to the original, but enhances it for use by the full ensemble. Alert your contest/festival music committee to this worthy new piece for high school string orchestras.

Yosemite Falls
Sean O'Loughlin

Yosemite Falls
Yosemite Falls depicts the wide open spaces of this magnificent western treasure, exploring new sounds and harmonies in a fresh approach from Sean O’Loughlin. However, this work retains his signature flourishes, such as angular rhythm, drive, and punctuated harmonies. A very strong choice for your more advanced ensembles in contest or festival performance.
