Students will feel like a super-sleuth as they play Secret Agents! This solo, written in D minor and 4/4 meter, is a mysterious romp through the world of pretend espionage. Students should search for clues on how to perfectly capture the feeling of this piece by focusing on dynamic changes and contrasting articulations. Things get even more mysterious with the use of octave shifting in the left hand. Feel free to team up with another spy and play this solo as an optional duet! A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
