Grade 2 - This fast swing piece in G minor is reminiscent of the "Young Frankenstein" soft-shoe "Puttin' on the Ritz" (Cole Porter) or that wonderful spy-oriented animation from the early 1960s. Playfully sneaky, with a catchy, singable tune, this work features a tutti pizzicato section, as well as some melodic moments for bass and celli. All parts remain in first position, with a couple of "funky" accidentals thrown in for fun. The swing-eighth feel keeps the mood appropriately shadowy!
