Inspirations In C

Introduction

Inspirations in C is a collection of fourteen pieces for pianists at an intermediate level that explore the tonal center of C and its related modes across contemporary styles.

While Number One is intentionally repetitive in a Minimalist style, the fourteen pieces express numerous influences - the sweet, often plaintive folk song flavors of Bertok; Mahler's delicious harmonic shifts from major to minor; Kabalevsky's playful bright staccato; the exotic tinge of a Golijov piece.

Number Fourteen for four hands was inspired by a summer experience playing gamelan music in Ubud with the organization Cudamani. It is based on one of the scales found in Balinese music and seeks to evoke rich tonal clusters of the bronze instruments found in their traditional gamelan orchestra.

I have tried to write simply, so that students new to the piano - within their first three years - might have some melodically inviting and technically accessible pieces to explore. It is to these new pianists that I dedicate this collection. It is my hope that, in playing and enjoying these, pianists will be encouraged to compose their own inspirations in C.
