Written specially to help young players gain confidence and build upon their beginning playing abilities, Sinfonietta for Strings by Anthony Granata echoes the composition style of the classical period. A Sinfonietta is a smaller and lighter version of the symphony. Set in the key of G major, students will love the broad and vigorous unison opening, the sudden change to E minor, and the mixture of dialogue and easy counterpoint interwoven throughout the piece. This piece will help your students develop skills in proper right-hand bow facility, simple slur and bowing patterns, common rhythms, identification of accidentals, and use of dynamics to achieve a very strong and dramatic sound.
