The most common anaconda snake is the Green Anaconda, and it is the most massive snake in the world! Anaconda by Chris Bernotas reflects that powerful snake in musical form. The rhythms drive forward with an intense melody characterizing the strength of the enormous creature. The pizzicato section is reflective of the anaconda as it stealthily makes its way through a swamp or river---be on guard! Correlated to Sound Innovations for String Orchestra, Book 1, Level 5. (2:15)
