(The Strong Man Is Out)
Ganda Yina is built upon a melodic “conversation” that occurs between the tenor and bass voice. The tenor voice “speaks” alone in the first 5 bars, then repeats again with the bass voice. The left hand is Ganda Yina’s foundation.
Advanced, beautiful passacaglia with lyrical melodies.
