An elegant, beautiful, sophisticated, and lyric piece in C Major, this new work includes melodic content for all, particularly the cellos. With opportunities for practicing shifting and developing musicality, it will suit any concert and is perfect for serious settings. "Moment at Angels Landing" by Bob Phillips provides great practice in 2nd and 3rd positions for violins and violas as well as 3rd and 4th positions for cellos and basses. There is some upper position work for the 1st violins---presented in divisi, so it is not required of all students. All students will have opportunities to work on a sustained and legato sound with connected bow strokes and sensitive phrasing.
