MY PALINDROME

I’ve just had a fun little piece done by a student string orchestra. A kind of scherzo, called Palindrome, because it sounds the same played backwards and forwards. And reverses in the middle so we hear it both ways.

It’s full of rhythmic challenges that the students had fun. And almost all the double stops — all outside the first violins — have one note on an open string.

You can hear a computer demo here. Score is here. Take a look! It really is a fun piece, and I’d love others to do it.
