Barcarolle (2021) // 4'
Harbor bells and the gentle ebb and flow of the tide influence this Barcarolle, a Venetian gondola song. A brief stormy middle section interrupts the haunting tune. The oboe and bassoon each perform lyrical vocal lines, with plenty of moments to play cantabile.
Intermediate / Advanced – suggestions for breaths can be interpreted loosely and changed to meet the needs of the performers
