This short piece is made up of two distinct sections: Bars 1-8 and 9-70. In Section 1 the atmospheric rumblings of the piano develop into a frenzy by the time the open bar 6 is reached. Here, both piccolo and piano should improvise freely, manically and atonally. In Section 2, where the music veers restlessly between different tonal areas, the demonic rhythm must remain metronomic throughout.
Performance duration (approx): 2'30
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
