Today I began recording my eighth album entitled,
“Characters from Literature” to be released in May of
this year. The first four compositions have been written
for the “Little Women”.
Amy’s song, who was the youngest girl, is a lively romp of
a tune. You can almost hear her dashing through the house.
Beth’s solo is poignant and sweet. Jo’s is packed with the energy
of a herd of horses. And lastly, Meg’s piano work has all the intrigue
and sophistication of the eldest girl.
Ta Dah! This powerful final wave of this series smacks of Victory!
I hope you enjoyed the music and artwork.
The song begins with frantic chromatic scales rushing up the piano in pursuit of success,
followed by a full sweep up to a victorious descent.
This music creeps up the piano to an Alfred Hitchcock like tune, then drops down to
a riveting chase scene, ending with huge crashing sounds.
This classical sounding etude stubbornly winds its way up to a beautifully
crafted peak which cascades it way down to an obstinate finish.
This tune sweeps whimsically up the piano then descends with colorful splashes.
This daunting etude creeps slowly up to the break in the wave and then eerily plunges down to the abyss.
This exercise is chalk full of uplifting, inspiring, phrases with a positive frolic down to some sprightly splashes at the end.
This composition is so ginormous it took two pictures to illustrate its magnitude.
“The Build” of the Tidal Wave is portrayed by low daunting octaves building towards the
second picture entitled “The Release” which is full octaves at full volume in a very dramatic run down the piano.
This bright uplifting ditty rushes to the crest of the wave to rollick
playfully down to inspiration.
