Is it major or is it minor? Whichever it is (or maybe it’s both!), this piece is great fun for pianist and audience! The constant back-and-forth between C major and C minor create nice melodic and harmonic twists that delight everyone who experiences this work! Diminished scales and plenty of accidentals keep students learning and applying new ideas.
