Hi all,

I am trying to work out the key and tonality of Malcolm Arnold's quirky piece, The Buccaneer. The key signature has one sharp, and there are accidental sharps and dissonant chords all over the piece, and the last chord is neither G major nor E minor so I am rather confused!

Also, would you think there are any cadences in this piece?

Thanks so much.

I looked up on YT. It is a modern piece, it does not follow the usual harmonic scheme. All in all i would say the piece is in B phrygian with some flavor of B minor. There are cadences but not in the standard format.
