Souvenir De Porto Rico (March Of The Gibaros, Opus 31) : Louis Gottschalk
Subtitled March of the Gibaros (Peasants), this is one of the finest works ever written by pianist/composer Louis Gottschalk. In this adaptation for student strings, players must make a clean distinction between the melodic and accompaniment elements. The overall dynamic scheme will also require attention since this programmatic music depicts a passing procession (soft to loud to soft as the parade approaches and departs). With the exception of two chordal sections, driving rhythms are typical. Standard string orchestra instrumentation (88555). Duration: ca. 2:30. Available in SmartMusic.
