"Bossa Verde" is a very pretty bossa nova over familiar chord changes for string ensemble and rhythm section. This piece is accessible for younger players and interesting for the experienced players. Counterpoint is contrasted with ensemble playing and room for improvisation. Beginning improvisers will be successful playing in the key of one sharp and experienced players will enjoy digging into the chord changes. Suggested written out solos are provided in all parts so no improvisation is required. This piece was performed at the 2003 ASTA convention in Ohio.
