Light and Shade A work written for the 2009 BTS South event (originally entitled Crown Capers). A slow and expectant introduction leads to an up tempo jazz like section. After a more relaxed and melodic middle passage the jazz mood returns, slowing to a reflective conclusion. The light sections can either be improvised or the written solos performed.

Grade 6+                                                 4 minutes approx.
