Kabalevsky Op. 27 no. 29 Cavalry Gallop
There are a couple of reasons why this piece is very important to study. Firstly, you have a melody in the left hand that must not be overshadowed by an accompaniment in the right hand. Secondly, from measure 26 from 42, there’s a tricky mix of (sometimes) legato melody riding above a bed of staccato harmony in both hands. Kabalevsky does a wonderful job of evoking the sound of pounding horse hooves throughout this exciting work.
