Thread Name: Proper Music?
Subject: RE: Proper Music?
Lena, did you know that "Bolero" was merely written as a warm-up piece for orchestra? That's why it repeats so much. I like the trombone part, my friend Jeremy (he's a music history/conducting major) likes the bassoon part. Anyway the orchestra players liked it so much, they asked Ravel to make it a concert piece. He not only did that, but made it into a short ballet for solo dancer.
