Forces or Category: String orchestra
Orchestration: Strings only (min. 7, 5, 3, 3, 2 because of divisi passages, includes soli)
The piece is in two short movements: Saraband is buoyant, energetic, and wild; and The Way the World Ends is elegiac and melancholic. Both pieces contrast the violins with the other stringed instruments by giving each gruop a very different kind of music. Minimum forces 188.8.131.52.2.
