A strand of music. For instance, in orchestral works, the violins have usually two parts. That means that the violin section is divided into two smaller groups and each group plays the corresponding part. The notes of each part can either be the same, both parts may follow the same rhythm but play different notes, the two parts can be totally different while being faithful to the harmony of the composition or one or more parts can be silent for a while.
