Mare Tranquillitatis Composed by Roger Zare. For String Orchestra. Published by Fjh Music Company, Inc.. (Catalog # ST6268, UPC: 674398230587)

A moving and tightly cohesive piece, translating as "Sea of Tranquility," its emotional arc grows and transforms into a sweeping gesture, bringing closure to pent up tension, ending in one final tender moment. Featuring a solo string quartet of your principal players in delicate and intimate passages that are juxtaposed with lush tutti sections, the music shows the composer's ability to paint, as the New York Times reports, music with a "formal clarity and an alluring mercurial surface." Challenging, but beautiful when polished. New Ohio MEA H.S. Class A String Orchestra for 2013.
