This charming four movement work, that aptly sounds like the title, is heavily influenced by twentieth century masters. The first movement dances between key signatures, creating the feeling of puppets not altogether in control of their faculties, while the second movement is unashamedly intense in character. The third movement includes some very nice jazz-like voicing at the beginning of the movement, with Carr using all the piano registers to add depth and colour. The Latin flavour of the final movement is a total departure from the previous three movements, bringing the ear back to the ballet again, this time in a fiery dance. The asymmetrical rhythms, shifting time signatures and registers, and the once-again intense chromatics jar us back to the herky-jerky puppets as they summon their ersatz dance skills. For the advanced intermediate performer as well as seasoned professionals.
