"The Elements" by Richard Meyer is a colorful depiction of the four basic elements---earth, air, water, and fire---and is sure to challenge and delight every member of your advanced string orchestra. Impressionistic harmonies and fascinating rhythmic nuances give this piece an other-worldly feel with each element coming alive as a unique and wondrous tone painting. Technical challenges include 5/4, 9/8, and 7/4 meters and a refreshing variety of diverse key signatures and modes.
