Three Pieces for Piano

solo piano

duration 14'00”

Three Pieces for Piano (2006) was commissioned by Jana Mason and her husband, Richard Anderson, and was written for pianist Ji-eun Yun. “Fanfares” is an abstraction of the genre; characteristic celebratory flourishes and rhythmic motives are presented in a variety of atypical contexts. The listener is taken on an emotional journey touching on celebration, agitation, rage, serenity, and nostalgia. “Reflection” meditates on a recurring musical object whose color gradually changes throughout the movement. The music depicts an idea that is molded and refined through focused contemplation. “Soar” closes the work with an imaginary flight through a crisp, night sky.

Movements:  I. Fanfares   II. Reflection   III. Soar
