Product Description

Flambeaux Composed by Doug Spata. For String Orchestra. Published by Highland/Etling. (Catalog # 20785, UPC: 038081207155)

Flambeaux were the torchbearers in the annual night parades during Mardi Gras who provided the only illumination for the floats in the days before streetlig hts. Modern flambeaux carry on the tradition, trudging down the streets with t heir heavy naphtha-fueled torches. This piece depicts the procession of the fl ambeaux with fiery tremolo, exotic percussive effects, and modal melodies that lumber along like the torchbearers on a dark spring night. Students will bene fit from exploring rhythmic challenges, low first-finger notes, and special ef fects, while audiences will enjoy the vivid imagery of this piece. Flambeaux i s sure to add fire to any concert program.
