America, the Beautiful Duet Fantasy
By Samuel A. Ward / arr. Robert D. Vandall
Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands) Sheet
Level: Early Intermediate
This is a dramatic arrangement of epic proportions that will warm the hearts of performers and audiences. Mr. Vandall takes this relatively simple melody through a variety of harmonizations and keys. First stating the theme in B-flat Major, he then tosses the melody to the secondo in G Major. The primo dramatically takes the melody back before concluding the piece in E Major. Lyrical and expressive writing. Introduction and concluding coda for a colorful sunrise and sunset to the piece. Patriotic or Americana theme recitals perfect for Independence Day celebration or any time of year. 4/4 meter.
