Macedonian Mountain Dance

This item is out of stock
Macedonian Mountain Dance, by Jon George, gains color in the Mixolydian mode. Its melody is composed in ways that suggests the improvisations of mid-European folk musicians. Students may want to extend the piece by continuing the basso ostinato accompaniment and devising their own melodic variations and ornaments in performance. Thus the piece invites a tour de force of imagination in this vigorous dance that is a delight to perform and to hear!
