The contents of Sound Sketches Vol. 3 range from the dramatic, Venice, Night Journey, through lively pieces such as Kitesurfing and Marin, to the enigmatic Delphi or the melancholy of Goodbye Ullapool. Each piece has a short description at the end of the music, with hints as to how it could be played.
The idea behind the Sound Sketches series was to create new pieces that are accessible and enjoyable and to present them in a way that is both contemporary and appealing.
These pieces give student players the chance to explore the full expressive compass of the instrument in a variety of styles and moods. Through Sound Sketches you can be introspective, delicate, sad – but you can also dazzle, rampage, and have fun.
