Product details

Bukovina odyssey draws loosely on the string playing traditions of the Bukovina region (north Romania/Ukraine) and Carpathian Mountains. It is in 3 distinct sections: a slower opening in which solos are exchanged over dramatic col legno march rhythms and ethereal harmonics;the 2nd section moves along into a moderate tempo with more exchanges over an ostinato, which builds into a spirited final section recalling gypsy improvisations interwoven with a 4-bar Moldavian folk tune.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 set of 5 performance parts (15p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Medium

Duration: 4 min.

Influenced by the string playing traditions of the Bukovina region (north Romania/Ukraine), including the Roma (gypsy) accompanying and improvisational/decorative styles. Uses brief fragment of a Moldavian dance tune towards the end.

Typeset edition.
