American Frontier Suite
Level: Late Intermediate
With 3 movements, this suite evokes scenes from the American Frontier. "Plain's Rider", in the Key of G Minor, is intense and driving. "Prairie Nights", a slow, rubato piece, is in the Key of A Major. The last movement, "The New Land", begins in C Major and modulates to D Major, with a lively rhythm in 3/8. This suite is a favorite with late-intermediate students.
