A Moment of Buoyancy ~ Bell Tree Solo w/piano accompaniment

Composer: Paul Kinney
Octaves Handbell: 3   (C6-C7)
Octaves Handchimes: n/a
Other:  Piano accompaniment
Level: 3



This beautifully crafted original work was written for Bell Tree Solo with piano accompaniment. It begins with a gentle and mysterious legato section as the solo introduces hints of melody. This leads to a very nice segue to the key of F-major and introduction of gently syncopated rhythm. The fully developed melody is featured with contrapuntal echoes in the piano by the melody featured in the upper bass with the soloist ringing a lyrical accompaniment. A very nice interplay with ongoing legato eighth note passages moving smoothly to C-major then back to F-major continues to the final section where both pianist and soloist are fully integrated in the exciting and dynamic ending! The composer has included charts showing well-thought out bell tree setup.

Also available as a bell tree solo with handbell ensemble accompaniment Cat. 20715
