Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 10 - Tender Flower

12/27/2014
More
I almost forgot about this one! The tenth in Burgmuller's set of 25 etudes for piano - I forgot I had recorded this one along with the previous nine and just came across it. This etude (exercise) is intended to provide technique for repeated notes played by independant fingers. It's short and sweet.

Mendelssohn: (Songs Without Words - Duetto) Duet Op. 38, No. 6

7/12/2008
More
This work is one of the pieces in Mendelssohn's Songs without Words (Lieder ohne Worte) and is considered one of his most beautiful works for piano. This piece is a duet between two voices of the piano, and should be played in a way that makes the voices truly sing. The voices alternate throughout the beginning of the work, combine for a masterful climax, and then come together again at the end for a most beautiful coda. The last several measures are particularly beautiful when played as...

Schumann: (Der Dichter spricht - The Poet Speaks) Scenes from Childhood Op.

6/9/2008
More
This piece is one of the short pieces presented in Schumann's Opus 15, Scenes from Childhood. This is the final piece in the Opus and can be interpreted a thousand different ways. I have always loved this work. Perhaps because I love poetry so much? In any case, this short piece is both inspirational and thought-provoking. I have dedicated this recording to a wonderful woman, Judy Stockett and her dear husband, Jerry Stockett. You can read my full dedication to them on my SignMyPiano blog or...

Mozart: Sonata in C Major K. 300h (330) - Andante cantabile

5/10/2008
More
This is the Andante section of Mozart's Sonata in C Major. Although the Sonata begins and concludes in C Major, this particular excerpt from the piece is in F Major. It was composed in the summer of 1778. I am dedicating this recording to my dear mother. Mozart is her favorite composer and I have grown to adore this andante section of the sonata.

Grieg: (Arietta) Arietta Op. 12, No. 1

2/17/2008
More
This is another recording from the music book Classical Music for the Church Service: Volume II by Alfred. I really enjoy the simple, yet beautiful melody of this work. I've always enjoyed playing pieces where the accompanying harmony interchanges between both hands. This was recorded at my home on my studio upright.

Liszt: (Evening Harmonies) Transcendental Etude No. 11

12/1/2007
More
This recording is a live performance given at a solo recital in January of 2003. The recording was made on a nine-foot concert grand piano in a small recital hall. This Etude was the first of Liszt's transcendental Etudes that I studied. I fell in love with the harmonies and chord progressions that Liszt uses in this piece. It also happened to be the piece that I was working on when I first met my wife. For that fact, this work is among our favorites.

12/1/2007
More
This is the first in the set of 12 Transcendental Etudes. The set of Etudes is wonderful and this piece provides a great "prelude" into the rest of the series.
