Summer String Orchestra

Here’s a piece for nine-piece string orchestra (ie double quartet plus bass) I wrote whilst staying in Suffolk one scorching Summer.

It’s called Primary Colours [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/01-primary-colours.mp3%5D

    Hi Philip,

    I really love the ‘upness’ of this piece and in particular the bridge section at around 55 secs.

    Nice sort of Prokofiev echoes and liked the sweeping triplets at that point too.

    Overall it has a really nice folk dance feel to it.

    Top work!

    Hi Philip,

    Really loved the ‘upness’ this. Particularly the bridge section at about 55 secs. All the sweeping triplets.

    Had echoes of a Prokofiev piece for me too, and overall a really English folky feel.

    Great stuff and gave me a right old lift. Thanks.

    Felt kinda Prokofiev-ish there and the sweeping triplets are great.

    Almost like an English folk dance meets a hoedown.

    Nice work.

    I hate to have favourites but this piece is so upbeat and optimistic I can’t help but to instantly love it! It definitely reminds me of summers gone by (certainly ones with a lot less rain). I’d love a copy!

    Oh, what fun! At times it reminded me of Percy Grainger, but not in any concrete sort of way; I think it’s my mood this morning.
