Quick Overview

Cliffhanger is a programmatic work for string orchestra that harkens back to the days of silent film. One of the lasting images of that time period is the Saturday afternoon matinee, where each episode ended on a cliffhanger until it could be "continued next week." This piece tells the familiar story of the damsel in distress who is tied up to the train tracks as a train is approaching. Nicely done!
