While Basque culture can claim over 400 unique and varied dance styles, the fandangoa (Spanish: fandango) stands as the region's most beloved, the national dance of the Basques. It is a dance of pilgrimage: ubiquitous at fairs and folkloric events, fandangoa draws its participants spontaneously, as friends and strangers alike engage in this centuries-old dance of courtship.This arrangement of Fandangoa, for violin duo, engages in acts of musical courtship, as the violins politely exchange melodic motifs and attempt to ‘one-up’ each other in moments of virtuosic splendor. Transcribed from a performance by a trikitixa (Basque accordion) musician, Fandangoa displays the imitative capabilities of violins at their best: the performer is directed to mimic the ‘swooshing’ air-flow effect of the accordion by rapid acceleration of the bow, and to deftly emulate the Paganini-esque speed and note-range of this florid Basque instrument.Featured in Apollo's album, 'EUROPEAN FOLKSCAPES,' available on Navona
