Five whimsical dances, from "Cappuccino" to "Cakemarch"

This dance suite for prepared piano duet was inspired by Bach's French Suites and Partitas — but its whimsical nature is belied by the titles of the individual movements!  From the high-energy rumblings of "Cappuccino" to the haunting resonance of "Water Ballet," this 10 minute set of character pieces is as delightful as it is colorful.

Movements: 

I. Cappuccino
II. Tin Pan Waltz
III. Water Ballet
IV. Cakemarch
V. Oh! Courante

Once you get the hang of it, the time required to prepare the piano is 10-12 minutes.
