  • March 23, 2009 Great piece that teaches nationalism

    I play horn in a graduate-level quintet, and my group performed this piece for a competition. We absolutely loved it! The piece is very nationalistic; it was composed for a Latvian folk festival in the 1970s. Each movement is a folk song that depicts a Lavtian way of life...

    . The flute and clarinet have the most extensive technical parts, especially in the first movement. Bassoon has some tenor clef, and the horn stays relatively low with some bass clef passages. Other possible challeges are some of the movements have challenging keys, and the last movement is in 5/8. Oh, and the oboe gets to play tambourine in the second movement!! Everyone has something to do, keeping things interesting. I definitely recommend this work.
