Angelfire

Angelfire

fantasy for amplified violin and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: amplified violin, orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
description
Angelfire is a weighty and unrelenting work, with often dense harmonies and certain repetitive sections that draw on the minimalist style. In amplifying the violin, the instrument transcends from soloist to celebrity with every gesture
bathed in the spotlight and bouncing off the far walls of the concert hall.
