Blue Air/ Dring . Blue air has a dreamy , bittersweet character , evocative of the music of George Gershwin and Cole Porter in its bluesy harmonies and nostalgic mood.

This is MacKenzie my grade 8 student who is currently working on the piece ‘Allegretto’ first movement from suite op.14 by Béla Bartók. She is currently in 2nd year at Queen’s university studying Music and sound design .
The suite is one of Bartok’s most significant works for piano. Bartók was a Hungarian composer and pianist. He is considered one of the most important composers of the 20th century. His music is profoundly influenced by the folk music of Hungary, Romania and other nations . This piece uses many elements of tonal music ,with traids being the dominant focus.
Here is a snippet by Mackenzie!
