Symphonic Portrait

by Lennie Niehaus

Symphonic PortraitFrom the pen of Lennie Niehaus comes another knockout work suitable for festivals and concerts. This overture is filled with rhythmic vitality, soaring melodies, and colorful timbres. Set in ternary form, the "A" sections offer meter changes. All players need to be comfortable with the eighth note pulse so that transitions from 4/4 to 3/8 to 4/4 remain smooth and in tempo. The "B" section provides a warm contrast to the outer sections of the piece. Work to achieve long, flowing phrases in a legato style. Encourage string players to use vibrato, even on sustained notes.
