    From the intensity of despair and despondency to the tranquility of peace and hope, this arrangement will challenge the musical maturity of your group. The opening violin solo leads to a range of textures and harmonic twists as the music takes the listener on a beautiful, yet intense emotional journey. Stunning. (4:15)

    Balmages, Little Critters for String Orchestra Grade 1 (FJH)

    The vivid imagery of "little critters" scurrying about at night inspires the melodic lines and creative harmonies used throughout this programmatic work. Beginning soft and mischievous, the music builds as new critters join the fun in a playful dialogue. The harmonic language moves between moments of pleasant consonance and slight dissonance (because as we all know, some people love little critters and some people are terrified of them!). A highly imaginative, playable work! (Grade 1, Dur 2:15)
