Midnight Bells Are Ringing
Midnight Bells Are Ringing, is a spooky spin on the traditional folk tune “Frere Jacques” arranged by Jennifer Eklund. This pieces provides ample opportunity to work on lyrical phrasing, balancing the hands, and working in various key signatures.
Something Reminiscent, by British composer Joanne Griffiths, has a reflective, lyrical melody over a repetitive, pattern based accompaniment with influences of Max Richter. Based around the C minor triad there are technical demands of evenness of touch and balance between hands, with a little left over right crossing for dramatic effect.
