Title: Folk Dance from Provence for String Orchestra (Grade 3.5), By Traditional, Edited by Julie Lyonn Lieberman, Published by Highland/Etling, Item number: 24982
Sparklingly energetic, this alluring traditional Provencal melody has been arranged so that it is accessible to a wide range of levels. Julie Lyonn Lieberman, author of seven string books and five videos, has created complexity through simplicity by multi-layering the parts to build suspense. This piece offers some refreshingly different, yet accessible rhythmic phrases in 6/8, and is built on a G minor major scale (G, A, B-flat, C, D, E, F-sharp, G). It will make a unique contribution to your orchestra's rehearsal and concert repertoire. The first violins have a section in third position while the other sections remain in first position.
