Gypsy Violin Showpieces with Orchestra

Steven performs his own arrangements of East-European Gypsy violin showpieces. Selections include virtuosic and passionate Hungarian, Romanian and Ukrainian Gypsy violin music. Steven's orchestral arrangements of these showpieces replicate the sound of traditional East-European urban Gypsy ensembles with the lead "primas" violin accompanied by cimbalom, contra (viola), clarinet and bass using a standard classical chamber ensemble or Pops orchestra. Minimum instrumentation under 20 pieces. Each Gypsy arrangement ranges from 5 to 7 minutes in length.
