Descrizione

With a clever play on the words “Ancient Modes”, Graham Buckland presents eight character pieces for piano duet which effectively portray various mythical modes of transport and at the same time are based on church modes.

The transport scenes are all about locomotion aptly described by the music: you hear the flowing movement of the swimmers of Gilf Kebir (known from the movie “The English Patient”), the gait of the galloping Bucephalus and the marching step of the “March of the Ten Thousand”.

The pronounced subtle humour of native Englishman Graham Buckland is inscribed in these pieces which are of easy to moderate technical difficulty.
