Jeffes, Simon (Arr. Dabczynski, Andrew H.) Score
mp3 audio
Category: String Orchestra
Grade: Medium
Duration: 5:00
Instrumentation: str=8.8(3).5.5.5
Comments: Used in the soundtrack for Napoleon Dynamite. Minimalist Folk Music.
Description: Written in 1984 by English composer Simon Jeffes (1949-1997), Music for a Found Harmonium has been described as “minimalist folk music,” and has been recorded by groups ranging from contemporary music ensembles to Irish folk bands. It has been used in movies, most notably in the popular Napoleon Dynamite. The quirky but energetic melody is introduced by the violas and celli, and is later echoed and elaborated by the violins. Joyful rhythmic figures, challenging accents, syncopations, and a driving bass line all punctuate the accompaniment throughout the piece. Here’s a chance for the orchestra to explore a fascinating musical style while stretching their technique in an exuberant work.
