Siberian Hunt

Siberian Hunt is an exciting and adventurous work for young string orchestra. In it, the listener is transported to the frozen Siberian landscape on a hunt for beasts from a forgotten age. The piece moves with fierce energy and relentless determination. Written in B minor, it features a call/response section in the middle, rich harmonies, and a range of dynamic contrasts for the students to master. The first violins will enjoy getting to play on the E-string (watch out for G-naturals). The instrument sections are grouped rhythmically to encourage confidence of playing and ease of learning across the ensemble. The parts are balanced so all players can feel like they are an important piece of the orchestra.
