Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 10 - Tender Flower
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.
Clementi: Sonatina Op. 36, No. 6
I've finally completed the last Sonatina in Clementi's Opus 36! I actually recorded this over a year ago and am just barely getting around to releasing it. I apologize for the long delay.
I hope that you will enjoy my recording of this work!
Clementi: Sonatina Op. 36, No. 5
The next in the Clementi Sonatina set that I've been working on. This was actually recorded many months ago, but I haven't had time to publish it :-)
This performance did not turn out great. I would label it as "sloppy" and "rushed" in many parts. However, I am just as human and prone to fallibility as the next pianist (perhaps more so!)...
I hope that you will enjoy this recording of Clementi's Sonatina Op. 26, No. 5!!!
Brahms: Intermezzo in A Major Op. 118, No. 2
Apparently this is my first release of a Brahms piece on my website! I did not realize I was missing such an important composer in the classical reportory until now...
This piece is a beautiful Intermezzo by Brahms - one that was introduced to me by a colleague at Washington University in St. Louis. The piece has a wonderful way of playing with dissonant harmonies, coming to quick and peaceful resolution - only to be disrupted again by a twist of harmonics. It's quite wonderful. I believe this is one of those pieces of music that is far more enjoyable to play than to listen to - so for all of you pianists out there, be sure to add this to your list of works! Simply listening to the various harmonies and how they interact (or cease to interact) is a wonderful study in music and leads to some great pedal-work as well!
Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 9 - The Chase
The next in the set of 25 Burgmuller Etudes: Op. 100 No. 9. This one is fun to play... if you haven't already, give it a try!
Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 8 - The Sweet Grace
Here is the next in the set of Burgmuller's Etudes - Op. 100 No. 8. It is titled "The Sweet Grace." I hope that you enjoy this recording!
