[Orchestral Score] Luminous Shadows

Original price was: $14.99.Current price is: $8.99.

In this composition, we explore the use of major and minor chords that are either a 3rd or a tritone apart. This combination creates an interesting contrast within the piece. It starts off with a cheerful and upbeat mood but later transitions into a darker and more ominous tone. This shift highlights how a simple change of chord quality can significantly influence the overall mood of a song. For a thorough exploration of the piece, including comprehensive text analysis, annotated score, and additional resources, please refer to the study pack ‘Two Chord Structure – 2nds & Tritone.’

Score Notations

  • To ensure brevity and clarity, we utilize “condensed scores” for large ensemble/orchestral compositions. For instance, instead of notating individual brass instruments separately, we condense them into a single staff labeled as “high brass.”
  • Certain musical notations, such as breath markings for winds and brass, harp tuning, piano pedaling, etc., are not explicitly indicated in the scores.
  • Most transposing instruments, like clarinets and horns, are written in concert pitch to avoid confusion. However, some instruments in our scores produce sounds at a different octave than written (e.g., the Contrabass sounds an octave lower, and the Glockenspiel sounds 2 octaves higher).
  • Whenever feasible, we include chord symbols in the scores to provide a summary of the harmony. However, in cases where the music doesn’t easily translate into traditional harmony, we omit chord symbols.
  • While percussion plays a vital role in many arrangements, our lessons primarily focus on harmonic concepts. Consequently, percussion notation is generally omitted.
