OK, before I go any further Fredrik; why the thumbs down?
And is this based on Ravel's work? -> "hinting at the snare ..."
I'll be back ...
I thought it means?
The material is entirely my own... except for the name "Bolero", and the snare drum idea of course!
I must add that I really had fun while putting together the pieces in this piece. I did my own rythm patterns,
Thanks again for responding so quickly!
Bolero is a 3/4 dance that originated in Spain in the late 18th century, a combination of the contradanza and the sevillana.
"How 'bout a thumbs up"!
I could definitely hear your "voice" at first "glance";
but noticed the snare -> and had to ask.
I will listen more "in depth" and give a "unbiased/impartial" review tomorrow.
Must sleep to work!
Thank God it's Friday!
... till then ...
Filled with "trills/trems." and "thrills"!;
for a dance it seems more a depiction of scene than a performers accompaniment;
strange and dark brass dissonance with clear Fredrik-ian chord progressions.
A woodwind solo, maybe bass clarinet?, speaks firmly and gives way to the tension of the string "shakes".
... and the cherry on top - an inconclusive ending - "?"
But wait, a part two? with the most mysterious of instruments; casts it's shadow of intrigue upon this works entirety.

So clear and sharp and witty, fueling my inspiration!
After the roaring brass, I wanted to have a contrasting quiet solo section part with only a bassoon and drum in the first mov.
In the 2nd mov, I wanted to create a special mood with an alt flute and an english horn. Now, there's even a piccola flute solo (new).
this is very coooooool!
I like both versions...! The orchestrating is great wonderful too!

Very well done, Fredrik.
I also liked both versions. Rendering is
really good and really shows off your
creative style of writing.

Wow this is intense. Certainly true to the intended form and demanding of the musican as well as the dancers. Thanks for sharing it with the forum.
