Restful River Rondo

String Orchestra

Restful River Rondo

Composed By

Susan Day

This flowing string work was written to honor the career of a Silver Star World War I veteran and education icon in Colorado.  Images conveyed are that of a generally peaceful and happy retirement, but with various moods reflected in the major and minor key sections.  Written in D Major and d minor, the main theme is repeated after contrasting sections in ABACA rondo form.  In 4/4 time throughout, other playing techniques reinforced are hooked bowings, slurred eighth notes, some lifts and pizzicato, and expressive playing of the lyrical melodies.  Some of the slurred eighth note passages create the image of a tranquil, flowing river,  helping make Restful River Rondo a unique piece your students will enjoy!
