Shadow Dances presents a short set of playful vignettes all based around the idea of light and shade. The opening syncopations act as a kind of musical anchor, announcing the arrival of each section and serving as the rhythmic crux of the work. With a constantly shifting tonality from major to minor throughout, the piece revels in always being in a state of motion. Following a cheeky tango and a galloping horse trot, a moody middle section calms the senses before being taken over by blustery string sweeps and a fiery, funky Latin rhythm.
The set of parts includes: Full Score, Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Double Bass.
Length - approx. 5:30
