Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands)
Bella Tarantella dances its way onto the stage with finesse and excitement. Alternating between crisp staccato chords and a graceful twirling melody, a wonderful texture is formed right from the start of this fabulous duet in A minor! Featuring a lively 6/8 meter, strikingly contrasting dynamics, and a grand ending, this piece is sure to captivate all who take part in its dance. Careful attention to creating smooth passages and the wonderful effect of differing dynamics will yield a perfectly lively tarantella! A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
