About the Music

Fo

Written in the style of the 19th-century rhapsodies of Brahms and Liszt, Bavarian
Rhapsody combines the style and form of these masterpieces with a well-crafted
melody that will delight both audience and performer.

This spirited composition begins with a bold melody in the viola and cello, and
a light pizzicato in the bass. Keep the opening tempo at = 120. As upper strings
enter at measure 9, give careful attention to balance, to avoid overpowering the
melody in the lower strings. The accelerando at measure 25 should be exaggerated,
but solos at measure 29 should be flowing and expressive. Pay close attention to
dynamics and bowings to create musical detail within the phrases.

String Editing: Dr. Robert McCashin
