Dizzy Fingers is an appropriate title for this piano novelty whereby there is a breathless quality in its performance where the pianist races up and down the keyboard. For a recorder quintet however, "Smoking Fingers" just about sums it up. It has a sort of sonata form of AABACCA with a 2-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude between the BA- and CA-strains. Its character is in keeping with Confrey's other early compositions with "piano" titles such as Coaxing the Piano (1922) and You Tell 'em Ivories (1921)
Dizzy Fingers was published by Jack Mills Inc., New York, USA.
