Product details

Bossa Sonora is the second movement of the La Vida Apasionada suite of 8 movements that was originally composed for a string and percussion ensemble.

The violin and piano version was created so that the work also can be performed as a duet.

The introduction of this gently swaying work traverses through the key of G minor to its dominant key D major. The main theme is in E flat Major, but many extended chromatic chords add richness to the harmonic progression. At bar 57 there is change of thematic material with a key change to G Major in which the music continues until the coda at bar 95 when the music returns to D Major, harking back to the chord progression in the introduction.

Difficulty: Advanced — Bossa Nova Rhythm, double stops, pizzicato
