Imaginary Dances

Five fanciful dances, from “Cappucino” to “Cakemarch”

This dance suite for prepared piano duet was inspired by Bach's French Suites and Partitas — but its whimsical nature is belied by the titles of the individual movements!  From the high-energy rumblings of "Cappuccino" to the haunting resonance of "Water Ballet," this 10 minute set of character pieces is as delightful as it is colorful.

Once you get the hang of it, the time required to prepare the piano is 10-12 minutes.

Movements:
I. Cappuccino
II. Tin Pan Waltz
III. Water Ballet
IV. Cakemarch
V. Oh! Courante
