Bulgarian Folk Dance.
Bulgarian folk music is noted for irregular rhythms, but not in this arrangement. The rhythms are straightforward but the phrases fall in groups of three measures rather than four. Easy double and triple stops make the instruments ring. This simple and happy tune provides the basis for contrast and variation. Correlated to Orchestra Expressions, Book 2.
