Kabalevsky Op. 27 no. 21 The Chase
The Chase is a kind of companion piece to no. 9, A Little Fable. Both exploit the device of parallel octaves in very creative and challenging ways. With this fun, quirky melody, Kabalevsky’s guess-the-next-note style is on prominent display. It’s tricky to keep the hands in sync, but, of course, that’s the point!
