Furore 30
30 Years Furore Anniversary

Furore: 30 years of publishing

Furore is the only music publisher of its kind, publishing in the region of 1.500 compositions from various epochs by approximately 160 women from Europe, America, Asia and Australia.

The 30-year anniversary in 2016 is a good opportunity to introduce 30 string quartets of furore composers of different eras. The string quartet is one of the most prominent chamber ensembles in classical music, with most major composers, from the mid to late 18th century onwards, writing string quartets. Women composers from the 18th to the 21th century have written string quartets in a wide variety of styles. Furore Verlag would like to make them well-known.

Product of the week
Suite en forme de valses for orchestra
Mel Bonis: Suite en forme de valses opus 35 bis 39 (15') for Orchestra

The suite is a well-structured salontype work of intermediate difficulty, although some of the pieces call for a certain degree of virtuosity if they are to be played at an appropriate tempo. The music, with its slight orientalist flavour, emanates an air of elegant nonchalance. The entire suite takes about 15 minutes to perform. The Ballabile has a very marked oriental dance character, Interlude et Valse lent has a melancholic introduction which is followed by a charming waltz. Scherzo-Valse combines two original and gracefully developed themes (ABA) with lightness and elegance. It brings the suite to an end on a cheerful note.
