Product details

The World Music Suite for Mandolin Orchestra has 3 sections or movements. These can be played as separate, stand-alone concert pieces, or together as a Suite.

Movement I is East-West, which all sprang from the opening melody/riff, which reminds me of the Appalachian/Bluegrass American style of mandolin playing. I changed the second section to a minor key when it comes back in a bit later. When I brought an early version of this piece to a rehearsal, the Russian musicians I work with said it sounds a bit "Vostochnie-Zapednye" i.e. "Eastern-Western". So this piece is based on the change of character from a bright, American-ish (i.e. Western) opening to the more mysterious Eastern minor key and back again, plus the driving rhythm underneath.
