Okay, This is the antithesis of my last piece, Farewell Nocturne. Dan and others on this forum were right when they hinted that I needed to go out and find another canine companion right away, after Walt died. I actually did do that. My new pup is named Bruegel (pronounced Broi-gle) after the famous Flemish painter.
However, I've forgotten how much energy a puppy has. Oh my gosh.....what spunk!. So I had to write a piece for Bruegel. The jazzy sections come from his pension for chasing his tail around and around in circles, which usually ends up by him toppling over some furniture. I didn't know I had so much porcelain in the house...well...had.
At any rate, the piece depicts his ceaseless energy. I included the score if you're interested. It is fairly difficult to play and you need large hands to do so (10ths+) but if your not gifted with large paws, just roll the chords or leave out some notes, probably won't notice anyway.
This will probably be my last post for awhile since this is my busy time of year for work. (I'm happy that my work is picking up actually, it was bleak for awhile.) But I'll be back when things quiet down a bit.
