A sequel to his earlier work Sunchasers, Starchasers by Tanner Otto is a dark, driving piece that makes B minor accessible to younger players by carefully avoiding any extensions in the violin, viola, and cello parts. Its memorable themes, reminiscent of a nighttime adventure, are spread across all instruments. The middle section becomes ethereal with the pizzicato in the viola, evoking an image of twinkling stars. Starchasers is a great teaching piece for 3/4 time and uses low-2 and high-2 work to reinforce the 1-2 finger pattern for intermediate students. (2:05)
