Nordic Voyage

Erica Donahoe (composer)


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


This exiting 6/8 piece conveys the daring adventures of voyages during the Viking Age, sailing aboard Norse longships in the Baltic Sea. This heavy, accented melody uses frequent doubling between sections for a full hearty sound. The bowings and articulations throughout this piece create energy and drama, with first violin, bass, and cello venturing briefly out of first position. Players will feel the rhythmic pull of 3 against 2 in places, driving the piece forward with momentous energy, exploring new worlds of music!
