By Catherine Rollin
Catherine Rollin has created a bold and lively pirate's dance in this fun-filled solo. The key of A minor sets the proper "pirate mood", and the quick 6/8 meter is perfect for a spirited dance. The running eighth-note melody shows off agile fingers, and the majestic chords in the middle section add an exciting contrast in this A-B-A form. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
