The many patterns of swirling sand created by the wind are the images reflected in this solo. Written in D minor, the drama is intensified by the chromatic rise in the tenor voice and the ! meter. Teenage students especially will be drawn to the mood of this piece and will enjoy its mysterious yet rich, lyrical sounds. Many melodic patterns are included and will be helpful in learning and memorizing the piece.
