Work Details

Year: 2003

Instrumentation: 1. A little bossa nova:melodic instruments in C (flute, oboe, bassoon, violin, viola, cello); melodic instruments in Bb (clarinet, soprano saxophone, trumpet); melodic instruments in Eb (alto saxophone).  2. Tango milonga: melodic instruments in C (flute, oboe, trumpet, bassoon, violin, viola, cello); melodic instruments in Bb (clarinet, soprano saxophone, trumpet); melodic instruments in Eb (alto saxophone).

Duration: 3 min.

Difficulty: Medium — The piano part is above average in difficulty. Depending on the melodic instrument, the solo parts are relatively easier.

Contents note: 1. A little bossa nova (1 min., 4 sec.) -- 2. Tango milonga (1 min., 14 sec.).

Commission note: Commissioned by Boosey & Hawkes (UK) in 2003 for an anthology based on flexible instrumentation. The publication did not eventuate due to internal structuring at Boosey & Hawkes at that time.

As the titles of the two works indicate, 'A little bossa nova' is based on the South American bossa nova style; the 'Tango milonga' is based on the milonga rhythm, a variant of the tango genre.

The works can be played separately or together.
