Serendipity in Spring
Julie Gardner Bray
Appropriately named, this colorful piece is a tone poem that evokes the earth awakening to spring. The lush harmonies exploit the full range of the keyboard with frequent modulations to new keys. The thematic material is seamlessly woven into both parts. Often the primo and secondo hands are very close to each other. The composer includes short phrases above the staff such as "swaying branches", "fragrant rain", and "flowers blooming" plus others to depict the various sense of spring. Good piece for an experienced duet team.
