This is a great, fun way to explore some interesting rhythmic and bowing techniques in major and minor keys. The first violins are required to use low first fingers, while the other parts are very straight forward. The bass part is essential, but is covered in the left hand of the piano. Whilst the string parts can stand alone, the piano part adds a distinctly calypso feel. Sure to be a concert favourite.
