Stacked Kolos - First Movement - Haystack Kolo

Uploaded on Apr 13, 2017

Kolo (lit. Wheel) is a circular dance common among South Slavs.

The 7/8 time signature is the signature time of the traditional and folk music of nations of former Yugoslavia.
Not every kolo is written in 7/8 and not every 7/8 folk tune is a kolo but there are is a large intersection between the two sets.

This orchestral piece was made on the top of my previous piece, which was an piano etude in 7/8 time and available here:

All three movements:

UPDATE May 29, 2017: As suggested by Steve Kudlo (@Stefanokud) Clarinet replaced with Clarinet Bb and Soprano Flute by Piccolo. Instruments grouped by their types to make the score conventional.

UPDATE July 19, 2018. Decided to make a three movement pieace, so renamed from "Bottom Up Kolo Nº.1 - Haystack Kolo" to "Stacked Kolos - First Movement - Haystack Kolo".
