||"Short Set for String Ensemble" was written in 2013 by Glenn Simonelli. This is scored for Vln. 1 & 2l; Vla.; Cello and Bass. It has four movements...Ballad; Doo Wop; Dirge; Boogie. Nice music for young/intermediate players.
Four short songs for beginning string ensemble designed for maximum student interest. The first movement is a jazzy ballad in moderate tempo. The second is straight ahead pop, sharing the melodic lines between all 4 parts. The third movement is slow and moody, and the 4th movement is an up-tempo 12-bar boogie-woogie.
