Animal Farm

“Animal Farm is a composition for string quartet that started off as a project for English class, in which students were assigned to create something that went along with the novel Animal Farm, by George Orwell. This composition was written to describe the scene after Napoleon has taken over the farm and many of the animals were killed. This piece differs from the original and is (hopefully!) better. It is written in D Minor to capture the sad feeling from the book, and utilizes different techniques that only string instruments can play, such as arco, pizzicato, and harmonics. Enjoy!”
