Dance of the Wild Men: Composed in 1919, images of dancing wild men are evoked not only by the title of the work but also by performance directions that include "Fiercely, with the utmost intensity", "furiously", and "bang" (the keyborad). Always an extremely popular work, it was performed at the time by visiting concert artist Benno Moiseiwitsch to whom it is dedicated. A highly chromatic work of almost intense savagery, it is built on a number of small motives with changing tonalities anchored by pedal points. The chromatic sections are in the nature of episode.
Duration: 3 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — AMEB Grade A.Mus
Dedication note: "To Benno Moiseiwitsch"
