Beethoven's most famous tune, "Ode to Joy' is featured in this stunning improvisation for two pianists. The sturdy melody is treated in a theme and variations style. The extended introduction is in a neoclassical style, quoting a fragment of a Bach two-part invention in a toccata-like effect as well as echoes of Beethoven's own piano writing. The first statement of the theme is characterized by contemporary syncopation and followed by a middle section with lush lyricism and rich harmonies (a Hayes trademark). Then comes an impressionistic development reminiscent of Debussy. The arrangement concludes with a "no-holds-barred" proclamation of utter joy in 12/8 meter, not unlike Beethoven's own treatment in his "Ninth Symphony". This duet is for advanced pianists, and is perfect for concert and worship settings alike. LEVEL: Advanced.
