This exhilarating theme uses strums, tremolos, and pizzicato to imitate the sounds of guitar and mandolin that are synonymous with gypsy music. Tempos range from slow at the start to very fast at the end. The success of this piece depends on low strings playing with energy and bravado. Use of optional tambourine will definitely enhance the ethnic flavor. Duration ca. 6:30.
