1. Strings sheet music cover of Torrent, composed by Ted Allen.


Composer Ted Allen

A storm of fiddle tunes and ostinatos portray a flash flood rushing down a southwestern slot canyon in this fast-paced outing for advancing string orchestra. Conceived as an American response to the 4th movement of Gustav Holst's "St. Paul's Suite," Torrent is set in a lively six-eight meter in minor pentatonic tonality. After the piece flows through a few fiddle-friendly keys, the first violins bring on the deluge with accessible third position arpeggios.
