Volatilis

Ensemble: OrchestraGrade: Grade 4Length: 4:00

Volatilis (from the Latin “volatilis” meaning “to fly”) is an adjective used to describe something unstable or changeable. The piece opens with a quick fanfare and moves into a

march like section. There is a mysterious section that features a solo French horn and then builds to a very new and passionate treatment of the melodic motive. The piece then transitions to rapid ending that features woodwind and string flourishes, brass fanfares and powerful percussion.
