EARLY MORNING RISING inc DANDY WALTZ
Solo / FB / Grade 3
This piece, written to be played on a converter or free-bass accordion, is written in C Major 4/4 time and presents a slightly canonic movement between the treble and bass keyboards. It is meant to introduce the emerging player to thirds in the treble and double notes in the basses. It also requires the accordionist to hold down one treble note while playing others above it. The theme of the piece is in its title – about coming to life after sleeping, and the repetitive patterns associated with daily life.
