An Academic MarchRichard Chiarappa - Clear Mud Publications
As reviewed in American String Teacher Magazine, "This refreshing work reflects teaching experience and unerring feeling for the abilities of advancing string players. It is a delightful ABA work, with dramatic outer sections contrasting with the more lyrical middle. Violins play mostly in first position with a few well-prepared shifts to third. Basses vary the ensemble's timbre and texture by doubling cellos arco, mirroring them pizzicato, or dropping out altogether. This is an excellent addition to any [string] orchestra's repertoire.
