E-SINGLE WITH SINGLE-USER and STUDIO LICENCE
An attractive piano piece with a good backstory of the ghost train by Lindsey Berwin has every hallmark to become a favourite tune to play at the Halloween recitals. The composer is skilfully using chromatic augmented intervals to create an atmosphere of the Ghost Train moving along in the dark of night. It begins with a slow, rubato 4-bar introduction, setting the scene for the ghostly journey! The left hand then establishes an ostinato pattern based on augmented 4ths, representing the movement of the train, while the right hand mimics the sound of its whistle. The tension builds, until fortissimo chords herald the appearance of a frightening apparition! The train restarts twice more, the last time accelerating, until octaves, played presto, lead into a final terrifying encounter!
