Abel-London Bridge (SP)-5T/2X/C/V/B/CEL - Product Information

London Bridge by Alan Abel brings to life the early moments of a first music lesson by a reluctant and slightly incorrigible student. You hear the melody and then you don't, followed by the sharp crack of teacher's ruler across the students fingers. The melody is finally rescued by the rest of the ensemble in a contrapuntal treatment. This piece even comes complete with a surprise ending.
