Piano Solo - Advanced Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Jenny Walker. Modern, World. 19 pages. Published by J Walker (S0.332697).

Item Number: S0.332697

If you want something different for the piano, this collection is perfect!  It uses the 'double harmonic' scale to give an Arabian feel and provide an exotic sound to the Western ear. The pieces are great for late intermediate level pianists of all ages and would be ideal for projects correlating music with middle Eastern culture. 

The main theme is the isolation of the desert, represented by 'Nothingness', 'Noon Sun' and 'Oasis'. The Opening 'Golden Sands' and 'Caravan' depict the gently rolling landscape and the presence of camel trains. 'Beledi', 'Scorpion Dance' and 'Gecko Strut' are livelier and dance-like. The use of octaves and unexpected running passages gives a sense of surprise.
