A few pages from the pen of the eminent composer Marvin Schluger. This is Rhumba for Puppets for solo piano, a series of energetic variations derived from an original dance theme. The piece is marked by a great deal of juxtaposed chromaticism, for example, two measures before rehearsal letter O (C-sharp in lower-middle voice against C-natural bass note), and an even more exemplary, six measures after letter O (E-flat octaves in right hand with E-natural octaves in left hand respectively). If you click here you can compare a page of manuscript with it's final corresponding typeset sheet.
