Sentimental Dances tells the story of two strangers who meet and develop feelings for each other, but who ultimately cannot be together. There are a range of emotions through the pieces, from excitement and affection to the melancholy and sorrow of Last Dance.
Sentimental Dances is a versatile set of pieces, which can be performed at functions, events or as part of a concert. Working well together, each movement can also be played effectively as a stand alone piece.
1. First Encounter (Duration: 2') – Lively, fun, with curiosity and intrigue.
2. Moonlight Waltz (Duration: 3'30″) – Emotional and romantic closeness.
3. Time Together (Duration: 1'45″) – Relaxed and flowing together.
4. Last Dance (Duration: 3') – Sadness and despair as they part ways.
