Description About the Composer

Legacy - (Level III) Commissioned for string orchestra with piano by Deerfield/Highland Park High School in Highland Park, Illinois as part of “Focus on the Arts 1995. Scored for violins, violas, cellos, basses, and piano, plus an optional substitute violin for viola part. The piece is based, as was requested, on jazz and blues elements that would not require the complete re-training of the strings/keyboard musicians for the performance. There are no swing eighth-notes. Soloists are featured, potentially from each family of strings plus piano; written-out solos are also provided. The piece is based on repeated themes and rhythms that make the music both very lyrical and playable. Everyone gets melodic material (though not necessarily the melody itself) at various points of the work. The title comes from the jazz tradition, as this piece includes elements of the spiritual, gospel, blues, bossa, and funk influences in jazz. String Ensemble with Piano
