With its sweeping open-horn melodies, plaintive
muted lines and pulsating piano underpinning, "Pivot
Points" is an extremely enjoyable romp for the horn
player, pianist and listener alike!!! After an introductory section
marked by hand-stopped horn lines played over a sequence of repeating
piano tonalities, the rhythmic pulse kicks in and never stops
as the horn player negotiates broad sweeping lines, jazz falls,
and intricate rhythms and intervals. Interesting piano interludes
provide plenty for the pianist to do besides keep the pulse.
An optional 8va passage at the end provides an opportunity for
the horn player to "bring the house down!!!"
"Pivot Points" is a great study in tone, range, style and technique
and would make a wonderful recital "encore" selection,
as the excitement builds all the way to the end! The duration
is approximately 5 minutes.
A solo French horn part and piano score
are included. "Pivot Points" is a GRADE 4 composition and is available only through this website from Sound
