Includes score and parts
The Greek Suite is a combination of three different traditional pieces from Greece (Lemonaki, Milo mu kokkino and Ksekina mia psaropula). They derive from various places, both islands and mainland cities. Unlike a traditional suite, the three tunes flow seamlessly into each other. The first and the last melodies are the most varied as they come from different areas, whereas the middle tune (the most popular in Greece) unites the suite in a loving atmosphere. There are many rhythmical changes full of Greek musical elements and syncopations.
