Salento- A Modern Tarantella for Violin Duet and Piano
By Grant Horsley
For string duet
Includes score and parts
"Salento" is a Modern Tarantella.Tarantella is a lively dance in 6/8 time featuring quick steps originating in Taranto Italy. The dance was originally a flirtation one where couples danced in a manner to entice courtship, however it is more known as a "dance of hysteria" for when a victim was bitten by a spider (tarantula), it was believed that dancing furiously with tambourines would cure them.This Tarantella is in ternary form and in A minor and the most complicated note value is a quaver and the highest note is top E. I have kept both instrumental parts fairly equal throughout avoiding a "number 1" and " number 2" I have left the bowing to the performer and I have placed it at Intermediate level, but the youtube link has the whole score for you to assess the suitability.It is ideal as a showpiece, useful for concerts, recitals or simply something a little different to play. It is 2 mins 45 in length and the price is for the score and parts.
