Product details

The Unheeded Pageant takes its inspiration from Rabindranath Tagore's poem of the same title, describing events in the life of a young child. The music focuses on three elements from the poem. A dance-like theme near the beginning corresponds to the more earth borne links between mother and child: "She claps her hands and her bracelets jingle, and you dance with your bamboo stick in your hand like a tiny little shepherd." A scherzando motif represents the wind who "carries away in glee the tinkling of your anklet bells." A more ethereal legato theme reflects the realm of heaven-"The fairy mistress of dreams is coming towards you, flying through the twilight sky." Later in the movement the wind provides a bridge between the realms of heaven and earth, and the themes are intermingled.
The scoring requires an orchestra of at least 4+4+4+1 (or 2), and the solos can be distributed among players as desired. The violin solos
are shown in both violin parts to allow for this. A viola section equal to each of the violin sections is desirable for balance.
