Not Major or Minor Music
(Contemporary Music for Intermediate Players)
- Gateway Editions
7 new pieces using pentatonic, tritonic, wholetone, diminished, and Phrygian scales as the basis for both melody and harmony. Traditional notation. Lots of new textures, but they are clear and readable, and very pianistic. A NotesPage is included with the table of contents, characterizing the pieces, and the modern devices each one uses. Medium advanced, due mainly to sustained melodic 9ths, and sustained arpeggiated movement. 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 12/8 time signatures.
