Blue Ridge Run Composed by Alan Lee Silva. For String Orchestra. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # YAS85, UPC: 798408073404)

The title implies bluegrass, and while there are some fiddling elements in this spirited gem, it has more of an Americana film score feel than anything else. Violas and second violins get to shine on the melody under a staccato first violin obbligato and the cellos and basses really get to punctuate the action with accented lines that propel the piece forward. Some very effective "fp" markings provide yet more variety and a tinkling piano part adds nice color initially but then settles down to reinforce the string parts. Open string fifths and tremolo add flavor and a learning tool.
