This delightful piece, written for Laura Sheppard when a student at Trinity College of Music, is beautifully written for both horn and piano. Written to reflect the joyful kinaesthetic approach that eurhythmics brings to music. These short unaccompanied pieces are tuneful rather than atonal, although they not particularly rooted in one key. The style of the first is freely declamatory but in a haunting mood, requiring rubato and a wide dynamic range. The second piece is in a waltz style, with a sweeping tune and off beat figures, as if the horn is playing both the solo and its own accompaniment. The third piece is in ternary form in a bouncy hunting horn style with a staccato middle section. The final piece is the most virtuosi and swings along quickly with a jazzy feel, despite the 5/8 time signature. Useful pieces for the intermediate student, yet with enough substance for the more experienced.
