This work is a reworking – and definite improvement – on the original composition Violin Company which was written in 2001 for the very unusual combination of an orchestra comprising solely the upper strings. It is a soft ‘pop-classic’ piece in the form of an instrumental song. The orchestra – without cellos or double basses – produces a constantly lyrical sound in which all instruments take turns with melodic importance, but the violas and third violins hoften have the vocal harmonic accompaniment. It can work equally well played by 8 soloist or an entire orchestra of upper strings, in which case the violins have to divide up into three principal sections and not the normal two!
