Carol of the Bells Variant for string orchestra is an interesting adaptation of the popular Christmas classic. The opening three-note ostinato is presented in 4/4 time and immediately sets the tone for this intriguing variation. The piece is built on driving rhythms, and the musicians should take an aggressive performance approach. Carol of the Bells Variant will provide a creative addition to the holiday repertoire.
