Burst of Bushflowers, A by Amanda Handel

Score

Solo piano, c.2'15. Grade 7.
The emotional simplicity of the tune conveys an easy-going enjoyment of nature, while the background chordal and percussive components represent the surrounding organic elements such as: soil and rocks, leaf litter and root systems, trees and bushes, insect and birdlife…. The music celebrates the inter-connectedness of all things in the natural world. The piece is written on a B flat tonic pitch in pentatonic tonality.  Composed 2012
