Product DescriptionThe Messenger is a solo piano piece in 12/8 time which uses the keys of D minor, G minor and E minor. Keep the undulating sixteenth notes a little softer so that the melody can stand out, but make sure to keep a driving rhythm throughout. The left hand should remain loose and flexible so that the second finger can move over the thumb quickly. Make the crescendos and diminuendos big and sweeping for more dramatic effect, and use the pedal throughout. Great for intermediate pianists.
