COMPOSER(S): Scott Watson
This version of Rock Solid by Scott Watson is part of our Alfred FLEX offerings and is designed with maximum flexibility for use by any mix of instruments---wind, strings, and percussion, including like- or mixed-ensembles with as few as 4 players. The suggested instrumentation and a customizable Teacher Map will help you plan out how to best assign parts to suit your ensemble's needs. The 4-part instrumentation will support balanced instrumentation of the lower voices. It also comes with supplemental parts for maximum flexibility. With the purchase of this piece, permission is granted to photocopy the parts as needed for your ensemble. A percussion accompaniment track is also available as a free download. String parts have been carefully edited with extra fingerings and appropriate bowings to support students in mixed ensembles playing in less familiar keys.
Scott Watson's original composition features a moderate rock feel and gritty, dissonant harmonies that combine to portray the sound of industry---work gangs laboring with machinery whirring, clanging, grinding, and banging, along with several vocal shouts from the band and a factory whistle! (4:00)
