The Recital Junior String Ensembles Series series

Recital Music publish a wealth of music for the junior string orchestra ensemble, in a range of popular styles and idioms. Our aim is to create a new and exciting selection of music for every level of string player, from beginner to professional, and to offer music which has great player and audience appeal.

Dancing Centipedes was composed in the early 1990s and is a lively, fun and rhythmic piece for the junior string orchestra. There are accessible technical and musical challenges for each instrument and the alternating metres of 5/4 and 6/4, alongside a range of articulations and dynamic contrasts, help to provide useful new study and performance material for young musicians.

Parts are provide for Violin 3 and Viola, each playing the same music, and both lines are included in the score.

Dennis Leogrande writes: "Please keep in mind that these are happy centipedes - that's why they are dancing!"
