Is it classical? Jazz? Latin? Yes to all three. This very creative treat for strings explores a variety of styles, meters and modalities. Be-Boppin' Boureputs the 17th century boure and 20th century swing styles, face to face. You'll never again have to teach the difference between "swing 8th's and "straight 8th's." Bittersweet Berceuse weaves lyrically from major to minor; a beautiful diversion between the two outer movements. Brazilian Bagatelle gives your strings a rare chance to play Latin rhythms and brings the work to a dramatic finish.
