Timothy Brown, Fandango del Sol01:31

Timothy Brown, Fandango del Sol


Timothy Brown

"The fandango is a Spanish dance in triple meter, traditionally accompanied by guitar and castanets. It is moderate to fast in tempo and can sometimes contain a slower melody which may be sung.  The contrasts in tempo and dynamics give this piece its lively, dance-like quality." (Timothy Brown, reproduced here with permission of the composer.)

In order to capture the Spanish essence of this piece, students will need to have a good sense of rubato, as well as great dynamic range. The middle section has a delightful imitation of castanets. This piece is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
