Item Number: S0.4814

A Minimalist piece, using a constant 16th note figure in the R.H. as the L.H. plays low in the bass clef and high in the treble, on beats One and Three. Two alternate fingerings are provided for the R.H. part, so that the player can vary it to avoid fatigue. Each repetition should have a change of the sustain pedal. The "tune" marches up and down the Bb major scale, with a chromatic F# providing "minimal" contrast in the middle of the piece. Each new melody tone is introduced along with the preceding one, as a dyad,and then the leading note plays alone, followed by the next new dyad, except for the lone "color-tone" F#, which is presented by itself. It concludes with a "coda" that has the upper L.H. note staying on F, whilst the lower one proceeds down to Bb, and "One Note Beyond", to A. Each measure is repeated three times. Approx. duration 3 mins 15-30 secs. Typical Minimalist features, and Counting each measure's repetitions is essential!
