This level 3.0 (Intermediate) work was originally written as underscore for film and television where, in high-class restaurant and other social event settings, there is inevitably the obligatory string quartet playing in the background! The result worked so well, though, that I decided to release it as a concert piece, although it could also still be used by a string quartet playing at functions.
The original name, "Restaurant Rondo," reflects the origin of the work, as well as its structural form. The new name, "Rondo Remi," is wordplay around the form of the work and the first three notes of the scale, which appear in sequence as the first three notes of the first melody, albeit reversed, i.e. re, mi, do.
The work is more romantic than classical in nature, even though designed around the classical string quartet. The contrasting sections keep the listener's interest even though the melodies return repeatedly.
