Military March is composed with melodic and harmonic thirds and fifths. The left hand performs exclusively harmonic fifths moving mostly by step while the right hand focuses on both intervals melodically. Six brief key changes moving through the major keys of D, C, Ab, F, A, Eb before returning to D will test the performers observance and understanding of key centers. Subdivision of sixteenths and eighth note triplet rhythms in the right hand combined with detailed articulations add a distinctive character to this moderate tempo march.
