The Whole Suite
The Whole Suite comprises a full 30-page score plus seven full version audio mp3 files.
Each of the 7 movements has its own style and character, driven by the use of this exotic and fascinating mode. It is also known as the diminished scale due to it being made up of two interlocking diminished seventh chords. Adam’s Half features passages using these chords.
Students will find themselves moving into unrelated key centres –
Bitter Sweet moves from Ab to A to F# - and combining major and minor thirds in the same chord – Walking the Straight Line.
There are blues-tinged movements (Second Slice), a classic tango rhythm overlaid with that intriguing harmony (Tango with a Twist), and a more Romantic piece featuring an augmented fourth (In a Heartbeat).
What is included:
• Title page
• Notes about the seven movements designed to assist the teacher
• Full 30-page score
• 7 individual audio mp3 files
Level: Medium difficulty. Comparable to AMEB Grade 5-6.
