Seven Episodes for Piano Solo
- Gateway Editions
Seven short modern pieces, accessible for the intermediate student or experienced performer who is unfamiliar with contemporary piano repertoire. #1 uses wide leaps and clusters, #2 has rapid single notes in various rhythms. #3 is all trills and swells! #4 features symmetrical clusters alternating between the hands. #5 is all quintal triads, alternating between the white and black keys, in an Andante Maestoso mood. #6 uses keyboard topography and mirroring, starting at the EXTREME opposite ends ofthe keyboard. #7 has a quick tempo, and uses simple diatonic 4-note gestures in combination, for a spritely closing episode. Medium easy to medium advanced, but nothing that is so abstract as to be undecipherable.
