Escaping the Sun
Frank McKinney
Difficulty: Grade 1.5 Order Code: CB222437
Duration: 3:10 Price: $55.00

A thrilling musical adventure of a suspenseful and dangerous escape from an erupting sun. After an ominous mighty opening in G minor, the mood shifts dramatically to expanding contrapuntal melodies and eventually to a peaceful and lyrical section in B flat major. Agitato (restless), legato (smoothly) and pesante (ponderous) lines return in G minor to combine for the thrust needed as the flight finally pulls away from the turbulent sun. For musical excitement and contrasting styles, it just doesn t get any better than this!
