Sun Bird is yet another composition inspired by the Native North American, a very popular theme in the early 1900's. This a typical pleasant, gentle-going, easy-to-perform Mills piece whereby the treble has the melody throughout. It has an AABBACCBB form in the keys of C-major and F-major for the final CCBB sections. The word "intermezzo" in the subtitle is used as a term to mean a short concert piece in the same was as Brahms for example who used it for his short piano works.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
Sun Bird was published by F. A. Mills, New York, USA.
There is also a trio version of this item.
