This ode to the Wild West begins with a mysterious introduction using the folk song "All the Pretty Little Horses" in an eerie setting that will send shivers up the spines of performers and audience members alike. Brief solos for violin, viola, and cello are heard. The pace then picks up as we hear the driving and energetic theme of the Ghost Stallion riding through the moonlit countryside. The repeated galloping rhythm (eighth/two sixteenths) appears in stretches and is designed to improve your students' abilities to perform this all-important bowing pattern. This picturesque and educationally sound selection by Richard Meyer is sure to capture the imagination and improve the technique of everyone in both intermediate and more advanced orchestras.
