Triptoe Suite is for the intermediate violinist, with the mood of a Baroque suite, although not the usual dance forms. Each movement has its dance-like rhythm, conveyed in the titles.
Peasant Dance and Hopping were the original two movements. When I created a version for orchestra, I added two more movements and arranged them back into the violin suite. There is also a version for horn and piano.
The four movements are:
- Tap the Toes
- Peasant Dance
Listen to a performance from a Just In Time Composers concert featuring music for students. The performers are Elizabeth Jameson, violin, and fellow composer Stephen James, piano.
