By Melody Bober
This solo, written in 4/4 meter and the key of A minor, creates the perfect air of a mystery. The melody is divided between the right and left hands and also features blocked intervals of seconds and thirds. Staccato notes, changes in octaves and occasional accidentals add to the "whodunit" atmosphere. The optional duet accompaniment helps to create suspense and drama.
