Orchestra

You are a reliable player and can hold your part in an ensemble without any problem. You play all the instruments from descant to bass, and are prepared to study your part in advance. You are able to relate to visual clues given by the conductor.

Steve Marshall, Symphony 6 (2014)

This Symphony is written for two S A T B Gb Contra orchestras. It's written with great care for agogics. Steve has made great play in this piece of whether notes are full length or staccato, and in either case if they are accented or not. The orchestras will be placed facing each other to bring out the antiphonal effect.
This Symphony has three movements: Prelude and Allegro, Pastorale and Finale. Total playing time is about 16 minutes.
