This version of Astronomica by Michael Story is part of our Belwin FLEX offerings and is designed with maximum flexibility for use by any mix of instruments---wind, strings, and percussion, including like- or mixed-ensembles with as few as 5 players. The suggested instrumentation and a customizable Teacher Map will help you plan out how to best assign parts to suit your ensemble's needs. It also comes with supplemental parts for maximum flexibility. With the purchase of this piece, permission is granted to photocopy the parts as needed for your ensemble. A percussion accompaniment track is also available as a free download. String parts have been carefully edited with extra fingerings and appropriate bowings to support students in mixed ensembles playing in less familiar keys.
Musically depicting the earliest recorded writings on astrology, Story's original composition begins with a hauntingly beautiful introduction transitioning to a forceful exploration with a dynamic conclusion. Enjoy this astrological journey that reinforces fermatas, caesuras, and contrasting articulations. (2:30)
