Rembetikonsort (2021)


A simple piece based on the 9/4 rhythmic cycle that underlies much of Greek Rembetiko music. (If this is new to you, try to find the film Rembetiko on YouTube or other outlet.)

I’ve scored this for STBB to get the melody nicely on top. Of course that makes the section where the Tenor carries the melody a good exercise in disciplined ensemble play.

This piece is freely available on IMSLP. If you like it, why no buy me a coffee?
