This burst of fireworks has all sorts of interesting scalar and chordal configurations, and is particularly taxing for the left hand. I am performing here on my faculty recital at the University of Akron.
Here we have quiet music, slowly becoming momentous, and eventually peaceful again. Listen for five groups of three, or is it three groups of five?
This piece uses broken chords for both hands, sometimes opposing, sometimes parallel, sometimes mirror image.
A sneaky scalar idea is transformed into a glorious chordal theme.
This twists and turns with sharp, biting dissonances, and phrase structure in Fibonacci numbers - mathematicians enjoy yourselves!
The Platonic Solids of a foreign world are depicted here. Imagine the different shapes moving slowly and presenting various mysterious facets, a geometric fascination!
A continuous pattern of thirds divided between the hands supports some quietly mischievous melodic fragments.
