Author : Beginner Orchestra

by Christopher Smith

“Impassion” is an emotional adagio in a minor that uses dramatic dynamic range contrast and rich harmonies. The opening is a chorale section using a syncopated rhythmic motif in all parts, so everyone can practice the rhythm concept. The focal middle section layers motifs from a variety of parts, building up the driving intensity towards a strong majestic ending. There is a D. C. al Coda to teach musical road mapping skills, bringing the impassioned piece to a close with a bright Picardy 3rd. This emotionally complex ride will really engage your orchestra with fantastic pull through the dense harmonies and sustained full sound quality.
