Urban Concerto Grosso

for Electric or Acoustic String Quintet and String Orchestra
Brian Balmages
Soloists: Grade 5 / Ensemble: Grade 4

This inventive and stunning composition is a modernized version of the original concerto grosso dating back to the Baroque era. Written for soloists on electric instruments, it is also possible to do acoustically. An ideal way to feature guest soloists, faculty members or talented students, the music explores a wide range of styles. At times, the piece sounds like Stravinsky. At other times, with the use of distortion pedals, the audience will feel like they are at a heavy metal concert (of course, backed by an orchestra!). Incredibly unique, and guaranteed to bring down the house! (6:40)
