Suite in Season
By Melody Bober
Duet Recital Suite Series
Piano Duet Suite (1 Piano, 4 Hands)
The Music Teachers National Association commissioned Melody Bober to write a collaborative composition for piano and two instruments, suitable for high school performers. Suite in Season for Piano, Flute and Bassoon (#39120) was premiered at the 2012 conference in New York City. Written in four movements, each movement represents a season and has a corresponding style that fits the mood. Shortly after finishing the trio, Melody arranged the suite for piano duet to allow other students to experience the variety of musical styles and genres used in the piece. "Autumn Ballade," "Spring Jazz," and "Summer Latin" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections.
