Little Symphony

Little Symphony

for strings


  • Instrumentation: string orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
My Little Symphony for Strings is a single movement work lasting around fifteen minutes that is clearly divided into four closely linked sections. The first and third sections (which develop the same material) are fast-moving while the second and fourth are slow and lyrical. The material, sometimes exuberant, sometimes nostalgic, I hope is organised in such a way that the contrasts and similarities are crystal clear. (Huw Watkins)
