A set of twelve playful and highly imaginative miniatures, each portraying an astounding animal. There is an Annoying Fly with its goofy theme and buzzing effect, Boastful Kangaroo with its left hand leaps and chords that move chromatically. Busy Woodpecker has a truly pecking theme accompanied by fast alberti bass while Tarantula’s Tarantella offers yet another challenge in fast playing with a variety of different articulations. Whale Song, Thoughtful Rhino and Hedgehog at Night are more mysterious in nature while Orange Striped Zebra, Silly Little Squirrel and Dancing Penguins are sweet little pieces for children. Happy Grasshopper has a lively and bouncy character that reflect its free and independent nature while March of the Centipedes has quite a mischievous theme.
