Ancient Story (Classic Festival Solos Collection)

composer: Kaplan, David
title: Ancient Story (Classic Festival Solos Collection)
publisher: Belwin Mills
level: Junior High / Intermediate
range: a"
description: Ancient Story is made up of several contrasting sections to form a very attractive “story.” Beginning with a cadenza, it goes on to a beautiful lyrical section including a syncopated area, on to a dance-like “giocoso” section, on to a “czardas”-like dance, and ending with a heroic theme. The main difficulty is in the range and agility required for the last section. Because of the sections separation by piano interludes, the endurance factor is not too bad. Overall, it is a lot of fun and provides lots of variety for the advanced Junior High player.
