Journey to the mythical place : music for strings / Romano Crivici.

Library shelf no. 784.7088054/CRI 2 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Simple opening andante section, with sustained melodic lines from the upper strings, accompanied by a pizzicato figure from the celli, which passes through an accelerando into a gentle 'poco allegro': a solo melody line from the celli over murmuring accompaniment from the other strings. (Based on simple finger exercise patterns). As with most journeys in life, it returns to the opening andante, a little bit wiser, and musically complete!
