Take on the spirit of the ancient Vikings in this dynamic and energetic piece! Open string double stops, pizzicato, and optional percussion create a dramatic sound that will transport you into a legendary seafaring adventure. Each section gets a chance to shine while working on differing bow styles and dynamics. Violins also utilize low 2nd finger while basses have limited low 1s. (2:30)
