James L. King III’s March of the Gnomes is an evenly-leveled minor key duet for late-elementary students. It has a bold and expressive opening, a middle section in lyrical counterpoint, and a recapitulation that captures that audience’s attention! Both parts are of equal difficulty. Both “facing pages” and “combined score” engravings are included for maximum flexibility!
