INTRADA: Some kind of rather grand entry-procession is the idea here. Two minim beats to a bar should be felt (almost like a slow march), but it may be more helpful to beat in four. The opening should sound as massive as possible, setting the tone for the whole piece.
There are three alternative parts, not shown in the score. Either or both of Violin 3 and Cello alternative to Viola (in tenor clef, for one or more advanced players) may support or replace the Viola part. The Cello alternative to Double Bass may, in the same way, support or replace the Double Bass part. In one way or another this lowest part should be played and not simply omitted. (These alternative parts are as nearly as possible the same as the parts they support, although there are some small differences where necessary.) The music will, of course, sound its very best in the instrumentation given in the score, but a good result is also quite possible with the modifications described above.
Intrada could become the first item in a short, three-movement suite of this composer’s pieces, all in the Goodmusic Concert Capers series, as follows:
Intrada - GMCC027 (G major; bold); By the River - GMCC021 (E minor; peaceful); Onward and Upward - GMCC023 (C major; with a cheerful tread)

Duration: 3½ minutes
A PACK comprises one full score and strings 4/4/3/4/2 (plus similar numbers of any alternative parts) totalling 25 parts.
