Clapping Song

Lively ostinato rhythmic patterns set up a driving momentum under sustained melodic lines, with bold interjections from the first violins on a repeated augmented 4th interval. This piece is a great way to introduce hook stroke and the low 1st finger (E string). A diverse range of dynamics creates colour and drama, while the swapping between hand-clapping and bowing makes for a fun challenge.
