Etude No. 1 (2009) for Solo Piano

Etude No. 1
for Solo Piano
Approximate Duration: 5:30
 

Program Notes

Etude No. 1 is the first piece I composed after taking a 4 year break from composing from 2005-2008. This piece was an experiment with minimalism and quintal harmony. Due to the repetitive nature of conflicting rhythms between the hands and difficult left hand passages up and down the keyboard (and with lack of a better title) I called the piece “Etude No. 1”.

Etude No. 1 is part of a collection of etudes for the piano called Three Pieces for Piano (To be completed in Fall 2011).

An video recording of the piece can be heard below:
