Inmusical terms, a “pastorale” can be defined as a piece that evokes the feelingof an idyllic rural scene. You might imagine a pasture in the countryside, witha shepherd gently guiding his flock.

Theinspiration for this Pastorale for String Orchestra arosefrom the serene natural landscapes of the western United States – mountains,valleys, desert plains and plateaus, complete with flora and fauna somehoweking out their own idyllic existence.

Asthe sun rises and sets over this rustic backdrop, we find a life of asceticdiscipline and balance – from the roaming elk herd, to the soaring eagle, tothe huddle rows of quaking aspen trees.

Thispiece features a solo viola line that is not too difficult, and would begreat for an orchestra looking to feature a budding violist.  For the orchestra, this piece also provides auseful exercise in dynamic contrast, uniform articulations, and multiple timesignature changes.  I hope you enjoy!
