en garde!

2011 [4.33]

for two toy pianos, cymbal monkey, wooden mallet, acoustic piano and table top drum.

Program Notes:

"A whimsical portrayal of the high energy romp of children pretending to be 'Musketeers', accompanied by the ever present clamoring of Charlie the 'Cymbal Monkey' who claps with enthusiasm, then protests in annoyance when made silent. The boisterous play is sounded by octatonic tonality interspersed with short motives of open fifths. The sweet 'tinkling' of a music box changes the mood as our playmates grab some downtime to catch their breath before resuming their wild, exuberant antics of shield and sword!"
