LEVEL 1 OPEN CIRCUIT

25.00

OPEN CIRCUIT is a great way to engage new players with the art of ensemble playing and performance. Sounding much more advanced than it actually is due to the clever orchestration, the use of open strings in all sections and the strong piano part, this work always impresses audiences. Using only open strings in all sections, the piece is quick to learn and easy to perform on stage. All players can concentrate on clear bowing, accurate timing, and discover the effects of dynamics as they play together. For players unaccustomed to playing in an ensemble and following a conductor or for total beginners this work is a must!

There is plenty of scope to adapt this score as you need: OPEN CIRCUIT can be performed by individual players with piano accompaniment and has also been performed as a quartet very successfully.

TEACHING NOTES:

The string crosses on open strings give an excellent opportunity for players to work on their bow arm movements both large and small - experiment in rehearsals with various tempos to discover the amount of bow required and the amount of movement, pressure and expression that is possible to create.
