This piece, for string orchestra including two cello parts, is suitable for players of grade 6 standard and above (or good grade 5 at the lower end of the tempo range suggested). It is designed to be technically easier than it sounds; the patterns in the continuous semiquaver movement are designed to 'lie well' on the instruments and care has been taken to make the bowings convenient as well as effective.
The double bass part, although very desirable from the point of view of sonority, may be omitted without damage to the basic musical texture.
Although designed in the first place for string orchestra, this piece will also work well as chamber music - one player to a part, with or without double bass
