Bronx SuiteSeth Bedford - Seth Bedford
Publisher Desc. Written during the composer's time living in the South Bronx on the Grand Concourse near Yankee Stadium, this five-movement piece is inspired by the borough and the complexity of life in New York City. It starts with the quick Prelude which juxtaposes an intense, repetitive figure against a lyrical melody: a perfect analogy to New York life. This is followed by the Waltz in 5/4 time, recalling the waltzes of Tchaikovsky but with a decidedly American slant. The middle movement is the mysterious Interlude which eludes to an oddly quiet street corner in the dark of the very early morning, followed by the elegant but quirky Gavotte. The suite is rounded out by the Milonga, featuring a melody soaring over a vibrant and raucous accompaniment. Every section of the string orchestra is featured in this composition, and it's ideal for an advanced high school, university or community ensemble.
