    Program Notes
    Bolero for Strings is reminiscent of the Spanish bolero, although in 4/4 time. With a rhythmic pattern stated by the entire ensemble, it continues throughout the piece while a single melody changes texture and timbre. All the violins have the melody first, then first violins with cellos at the sixth, and, finally, a key change with violins and violas in harmony in thirds moving towards a climax building from open G strings to a G major chord. Accessible to second year players, Bolero for Strings will provide a nice contrast in any concert program.
