Mondo Rondo is one of Farr’s most widely performed chamber music works. It is immediately engaging due to its combination of exotic melodies and percussive, funky rhythms throughout the three contrasting movements. Farr incorporates a clever use of the ensemble with hocketting pizzicato, in which a tune is shared and passed between players. Farr combines this pizzicato with subtle ‘body percussion’ (by tapping on the string instruments), which evokes the unique sound of the m’bira (African thumb piano). This work is perfect for string quartets looking for repertoire that is energetic and enjoyable for listeners. Mondo Rondo has also been arranged for string orchestra, and piano trio.
