Gene Milford: Nautical Variations
The well-known melody hooks students’ attention; rhythmically independent parts push them to subdivide dotted-sixteenth rhythm patterns and learn two-measure sixteenth-note passages…Milford gave C-string F-sharps to violas, and all parts have tricky finger patterns at least once in this G-major to D-major tune. Be sure to find a ship bell for the performance!–Tamara Mason, ASTA Journal
