Program Notes

This suite contains the following melodies: Little Conqueror; Egyptian Princess; Captain Kidd, Junior; Colleen Bawn; and Petey.

Little Red Schoolhouse is a collection of five short pieces that each contain a folk song-like quality to them. Colleen Bawn is a beautiful, lyrical movement that evokes feelings of reminiscence and longing as the music unfolds. Petey features a jaunty and upbeat tune in 6/8 time that is a delight to listen to!
