Sheet Music: Score
The ride of the little star : for solo piano / Michael Kieran Harvey.
by Michael Kieran Harvey (2014)
Written in response to Julian Yu's call for short compositions based on "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", and to the use of 20 million dollars of taxpayer's money to fund Wagner's Ring.
"Suffering another powerful migraine, Dick Wagner sees a little yellow Jewish star. He tries to flatten it with his fat Valkyries, smite it with a Tristan chord nicked from his faithful friend Ferenc, cow it into submission with his maniacal will to power, his turgid chromaticism, but the little star survives. Dick is reduced to apologising. Poor little Dick. Brave little Jewish star."
