Description

Swaying gently in the breeze, Lavender Fields is a reflective piano duet in D minor, ideal for primo players at about the Grade 1 standard (ABRSM, AMEB or RCM).

This piece is in the 6/8 time signature, which is known as compound duple time. This is because there are two beats in each bar (duple), with each beat subdivided into three quarter-note quaver beats (compound):

compound duple meter

The tempo moves at a steady 44 bpm (dotted crotchet pulse) but will still flow enjoyably at a slower pace. Imagine yourself strolling leisurely through fields of purple with the scent of lavender floating by...

During the first 8 bars, the primo presents the melody in the right hand. The piece then spreads its wings and rises in volume to the relative major, with the melody now switching to the primo's left hand. Although the dynamics are louder at this point, the primo's accompanying right hand should still allow the left hand's melody to sing through.

A poco rit. then leads us to a D.C. al Coda, and the piece ends with a thoughtful rallentando.
