Note: Both violin parts are playable on flute or oboe. This Volte contains some interesting and complicated rhythmic devices, not the least of which is the fact that although the dance is in 3/2 time, the melody is structured as if in 2/2time. Volte 201 is included in the Bargain Bundle Four Voltes from Terpsichore.
