I. Seven Toes Down
II. En Pointe
III. Muddy Boots
This charming suite has three short movements, each with its own character. The suite bursts open with breathless energy. “Seven Toes Down” is modal, in 7/8 time, with people dancing in bare feet on bare ground, so vigorously that it kicks up the dust. “En Pointe” opens with a lovely waltz, then it focuses in on the tiny, delicate movements of a ballerina high up on her toes. “Muddy Boots” is big strong guys, covered with dirt from a hard day of work, practicing one-upmanship. Different players have the chance to show what they can do, surrounded by their friends. Then we catch another glimpse of the ballerina before closing playfully with Seven Toes Down.
Difficulty Level: 4 (Advanced)
