Thank you to everyone that sent words of encouragement and/or congratulations on the anniversary of Urban Skyline. To celebrate the occasion I have uploaded a new composition, very different from the others, performed by a beginners orchestra. Stereo Sinfonietta was written to be performed by instrumental students within one year of taking up the instrument and uses the notes they know plus a little imagination to create the work.
Listen to the whole little symphony in four movements at https://urbanskyline.bandcamp.com/track/stereo-sinfonietta and I hope this music inspires them to keep working and improving in the future. The feedback I have had so far is ‘really enjoyed playing it because they could!’ Just the right comment for music that was composed with the consideration of the performers as the most important element.
If you would like more information or to download the full score and set of parts for your community ensemble the link is https://payhip.com/b/vma3
Happy listening to the 175+ musicians, all in very low-fi, and/or happy performing in the future.
