Doug Spata (composer)


  • Violin 1
  • Violin 2
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Contrabass


The yearning, Irish-inspired melodies in A Ballad of Inis Mór evoke a sense of quiet reflection. The poignant theme beings in the cello section, rising through the sections amid flowing accompaniments that ebb and flow with expressive dynamic and tempo changes. Students will encounter opportunities to play in upper positions, using a warm vibrato and refining bow distribution skills. Graceful embellishments, part independence, and a variety of rhythms will encourage listening across the ensemble to create an elegant, unified sound.
