Pieces for Piano for Four Hands b.3

Countries of delivery:
  • Cat. no. 12043


I treat the piano as an instrument in no way different from others in the rich music collection. […] On the one hand, I feel excited about, for instance, the possibility to write something in a style of a piano concerto, on the other – I have some doubts about shedding new light or sparking significant impulses from that great three-legged animal without hitting the obvious.
But there does exist something lighter – a play, a game, a distorting mirror, reflecting a noble appearance of a fatso. Not refined games, but volatile and smooth treatment of the matter. Not a game on wedges, but in trainers. A wink of an eye at an obese instrument arousing emotions in the listeners and sufferings in young music lovers practising scales and passages.
A remedy for continuing to compose for the piano may be […] a conscious “anti-activity”, presenting current artistic achievements for this instrument as if in a distorting mirror.
