Sheet Music: Score
Dunsinane : for large orchestra / Philip Jameson.
by Philip Jameson (2014)
Dunsinane has three main sections. In the opening section, the strings rise against throbbing woodwinds, muted brass, and percussion. In the next section, open brass instruments emerge as a competing force, urged on by a pounding bass drum. The music comes to a roaring climax, followed by a long silence. In the final section, the strings return for a shadowy encore. They make a lonely ascent to their high register, and disappear.
