Sean O’Loughlin: Solitude
The loud sections allow students to learn to shape musical lines and phrasing, using full bows for beautiful tone… While the piece lies in first position, some passages might be used to introduce third position. In addition to working on tone, phrasing, and dynamics, Solitude offers a great opportunity early in the school year for students to develop into an ensemble.–Matthew Wright, ASTA Journal
