Interlude for String Orchestra

I had three goals in mind while writing this piece: use and develop some motives, move from darkness to light, and make the ending beautiful. There are a few empty measures where I wanted the music to have time to breathe. Overall playing time seems to be about 6:44.

I used some poly-tonality here and there, but there are also pop music influences to help ease the tension! Please contact me if you would like to perform this piece. Thanks for listening!
