Chôros, opus 61 (1994-95) for solo violin by Thomas Oboe Lee. For Violin. Latin, Classical Period, Romantic Period, 20th Century, 21st Century. Advanced Intermediate. Score. Published by Thomas Oboe Lee (S0.10465).
"Chôros for solo violin is in seven sections. I. Chôro vivo II. Sambinha chorôso III. Valsa lenta IV. Valsa serenata V . Polca-chôro VI. Valsa graciosa VII. Chôro reprise When Daniel Stepner commissioned me to write a work for solo violin, I of course went straight to the Solo Partitas by JS Bach for inspiration. The Brazilian chôro masters - Heitor Villa-Lobos, Pixinguinha, Ernesto Nazareth, and Zequinha Abreu - also wrote their wonderful music with ""old Bach"" in mind. Under these two influences I went to work, shamelessly borrowing from both. Formally, the chôro patterns itself after the baroque dance suite. In my work, the movements - chôro vivo, sambinha chorôso, valsa lenta, valsa serenata, polca-chôro, valsa graciosa, and chôro reprise - are, respectively, similar in character to the allemande, courante, sarabande, menuet I, gavotte, menuet II, and gigue. The spirit of the music, however, leans toward the Brazilians rather than Bach. The first two movements are lively sambas, followed by three typical old-fashioned ""sentimental"" waltzes and a polka. Instead of a gigue, the last movement is a repeat, but shorter version, of the first, bringing the whole to a close.".
