Arabesque No 1 Debussy- Violin and Piano- Advanced Intermediate
By C Debussy, arr. Grant Horsley
For violin with piano
I was asked by a ballet teacher to write a short piece in two section for a ballet solo. She admired french music/film music, so I imagined a studio in Paris on a summers day- all the windows open- large room filled with sunshine. A solitary dancer in a chiffon dress and she dances completely in her own world.This original waltz, has some of the romantic lines and influences of french composers fused with film harmonies.It is abundant in unusual/surprise progressions and It is in ternary form with a livelier middle section.It has been used in classical ballet as a free dance for solo, auditions etc.It would also work well as a radio or TV theme for the appropriate programme.It is 5 pages in length and around 3 minutes long-level of advanced intermediate-The whole score is on the youtube link for you to assess suitability.Looking for a concert piece, recital, or something a little different to play?
