As the post suggests, I am interested in hearing anyone's thoughts about Bolero. Personally, I find it very enjoyable to hum (sometimes out-right sing!) the variations as it goes along for its fifteen minutes or so. From what I know, there seems to be no general feelings about the piece - it just exists... Is it really that blasť? - for lack of a better word... It seems like a pointless post, but I ask this in earnest.
i would have to agree. it's not a very exciting peice. however it was(as i've heard) revolutionary for it's time. i play trombone. and that song has the most reconized and poppular trombone solo of all time. make sure you never call it boring on the trombone forum. you would be eaten alive(j/k). i'm not a big fan of the song either though.
