Classical Music for Piano Solo
"Romantic, lyrical and impressionistic all at once, the pieces have a beautiful natural pianism" -Hamilton Spectator

The Elegie, shifting between monophonic and polyphonic two part dialog, imparts a sacred quality similar to Gregorian chant.  Accompaniment chords serve as quiet answers to the phrases.  The Totentanz is a dance of the body after death and is the last play of the muscles. In moderate triple meter, Totentanz features staccato articulations that give it a perky and playful character.  Opening with a rhythmic motive of four eighth notes, this motive is subsequently marked with an embellished grace note. and  spun out in a Baroque fashion.  This "single affection" pervades the entire fabric.  Use of a motor rhythm sustains a great sense of momentum, until the ending where it winds down majestically.   6 p.  AE0429  $6.98   Download Adobe Acrobat  3 excerpt of

PISCATAWAY "On Looking Deeper into the Water" Pno 12'  Peter Ware
MP3 of excerpt of Piscataway performed by Yvar Mikashoff
Utilizing the extreme ranges of the piano in a virtuoso display, this piece is named after the Piscataway river.  Colorful flourishes contrast with long-breathed melodies; and although metered, the rhythm is perceived as free, symbolic of the  river's rapid current and still eddies.  As numerous sustained trills and tremolos shimmer on, dynamic balance and endurance are essential.  15 p. AE284  $15.98

These concise works are musical Haiku in an expressionistic style.  3 p. AE659  $4.98
