Kolo Kolo for Mandolin Orchestra is based around two pripyevs or melodic links which are commonly used by Balkan musicians to merge one song into another song or section. Stephen Lalor has used this as raw material in a lively piece for mandolin orchestra which also reflects the ornamental & improvisational style of playing the tambura, which is the Balkan equivalent of the mandolin.
Year: 2009, this version: 2013
Instrumentation: 2 violins, viola, cello.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — For advanced student/professional
Kolo Kolo has been performed as the third movement in a set of pieces for String Quartet, along with Bukovina Odyssey and Flying.
