RTC-39: 1971 A Merry–Mournful (Major-minor) Mood

Publication: Waterloo Music, 1973

“This piece [originally written in 1971] is more or less self-explanatory. It is based on a scale combining the major and natural minor modes – the first part the major, the second the minor, and the third the combination of both. (The remaining two notes of the chromatic scale are included near the end.) Pianistically, the piece is a study in finger and hand independence and arpeggio playing.”
