Solo / SB / Grade 5


Written in A minor, this is a fast-paced piece that needs a precise, even right-hand touch. After a fast-paced beginning, rapid-fire staccato single notes drive into a hail of thirds, followed by rhythmic down-the-scale couplets. These in turn lead to a second theme that follow the introduction, and consist of arpeggios in A minor and E 7th. The pace continues until a small section of eight bars where the basses take on a melodic encounter with chords stated on the right hand, until the sudden arrival of a treble trill takes the piece back into the frenzied world of Magganajjer until the very end, reached at an accelerated pace until oblivion.
