DARK SUSPICION for String Orchestra
Dark Suspicion is an original work inspired by the movies of Alfred Hitchcock and his composer, Bernard Herrmann. It begins with a sharp, and tense introduction started by the second violins and violas while the first violins and celli/bassi snap pizzicato. The motif centers around the interval of a minor second throughout the tense beginning. The energy increases throughout until we reach a point of repose while the solo violin plays its line accompanied by the rest of the strings. The frenetic ending returns us to a point of resolution.
