The smoldering remains of a fire flicker back to life in Ember Dance. This piece is a musical expression of the glowing ashes and sparks that dance through the night air around a fire. This is accomplished with edgy rhythms and snap (Bartok) pizzicato effects. Exaggerated dynamics and precise articulations add energy and interest, allowing all members of the orchestra to sparkle!
