String Ensemble for young musicians, c.9'00 (suggested grade 3)

Dracula's Castle
is a short story depicted in Music.

The composition includes some extras that aim to help the Conductor. It includes a 3rd Violin part in place of the Viola part and a Cello2 part in place of Double bass. Due to the fact that the 3rd movement “Fuga/The Escape” is the most challenging in terms of technique, included is a facilitated score of this movement.

The composer's intent was to create a composition that teachers may use for didactic purposes in teaching music. The style of the composition itself is an example of “program music”. The purpose is to guide the listener so that he or she may be able to connect the story (narrative extra-musical part) to the music. It gives the teacher the opportunity to deepen the concept and provide examples of program music in musical history (e.g. Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition).
