Nuptial tango, op. 113 : for piano solo
by Richard Peter Maddox (2007)
Library shelf no. 786.2/MAD 6 [Not for loan]
This piece should be approached as a duet performed by a courting couple-specifically Beatrice and Benedick from Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. The melodic lines representing the two characters need to be given careful attention so that the lively dialog between them can be clearly heard. The final descending passage of stacked fourths can be thought of as a peal of wedding bells.
