Violin II from God’s Earth: Orchestral, minimalist, melodic
This is a modern classical piece in a minimalist style although, unusually for this type of music, with strong melodic passages. Unlike the music of Steve Reich, Phillip Glass and John Adams, it is not technically difficult to play, although a degree of concentration is required when following the shifting patterns.
Although minimalist in character the music is constantly changing. It opens quietly with just tubular bells, piano and oboe before ebbing and flowing through grandiose melodies, simple minimalist riffs and sweeping string portamentos. After a rousing full orchestra tutti the music gradually winds down until, like at the the beginning, we hear just piano and tubular bells, which end the piece.
As mentioned above it is not difficult to play and suitable for professional and amateur orchestras alike.
Perform this and remind your audience that we stand, live and breathe on God’s Earth.
