Solo / SB / Grade 7
Written in E Major, this composition has a Star Wars-like theme that starts with eight quavers to a 4/4 bar time signature that insists the performer develop an even touch. It requires dexterity and accuracy necessary for control of the instrument. Surprise attack chords, short bellows shakes, and an occasional treble keboard glissando are called for, until the final section of four-note treble chords. An even touch is needed to establish the strong, driving basses and counterbasses (no bass chords are used), and the rhythmic content throughout the entire piece to its vigorous conclusion with four-note treble chords. It is intended as a pleasing party piece guaranteed to attract the interest even of those disinterested in the accordion.
