Fast, romantic melodies pass through all the parts, sweeping beneath fiery ostinatos in "Avatar." This piece is designed to give students experience with the extreme ranges of their instruments -- plenty of E-string passages for the violins, C-string passages for the violas and 'cellos, and rumbling bass lines. Students and audiences will be enthralled by the dark tone and passionate style of Avatar, right up to the thrilling conclusion. This title is available in SmartMusic.
