    An attempt at finding an RHP game to match the Red Knight and the
    Black Queen dance of death from the Arthur Bliss Ballet ‘Checkmate.’

    An Unheard Melody from the Scotch Game and whilst looking for
    another example of the same theme I happened upon a great find.

    A scribbled down position in an old notebook and I need some help here
    to find the composer. It’s mind-blowing with a wonderful sting at the end.

    White to play and draw!

    Thanks mwmiller,

    I clipped the pics from that video. I've never been to the ballet.
    I might if go if that was on. (and put my ear phones in and play 'Time is Tight.'
