Zig-zag, two part canon for strings (elementary strings)


Title: Zig-zag, two part canon for strings

Key: D dorian

Meter: 2/4

Tempo: Allegro con brio

Genre: two part canon

Composer: David Gable

Markings: dynamics (f); sfz; staccato; downbow

Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Advanced Violin (optional); Viola (doubles cello); Cello; Bass (optional)

Note: repeated down bows at end; dorian mode results in parallel fingering patterns on neighboring strings; uses low 2 for violins and violas, fourth finger for cellos. Title is indicative of the angling appearance of the melodic figures on the staff.
