Cat and The Mouse, The Composed by Aaron Copland. Arranged by Jane Magrath. For Piano Solo. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 16736, UPC: 038081175409)

OMEA 2012, Class A: play all: Also in National Federation list, 2011-2013 Musically Advanced, Class 1: Normally in stock: Aaron Copland's "Scherzo Humoristique," written in 1920, is indeed musically humorous as it depicts the skittering rodent and sinister feline in a demanding, but very enjoyable etude setting, using complex 1/16 note patterns, glissando, grace notes, chromatic scale work, and a generous use of the entire keyboard. There are sudden shifts in tempo and dynamics, and the performer tells a definite story, albeit without narration. Large hand reaches, sometimes 9ths, are required on some of the full block chords.
