Product Details

Description

Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series provides ultimate flexibility for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass, or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non-standard instrumentation.

This slow ballad depicts the final days of Lonesome George, who died in 2012 as the last of the giant Galapagos tortoises of Pinta Island. An opening Part 4 solo is the prelude for an extremely expressive melody, which builds to an emotional finish. Your students will be challenged both emotionally and musically with this simple but descriptive lyrical piece.
