  • Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 10 - Tender Flower

    27/12/2014 Duración: 48s

    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

    01/06/2014 Duración: 08min

    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

    29/10/2013 Duración: 08min

    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

    28/05/2013 Duración: 07min

    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! Enjoy!

  • Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 9 - The Chase

    17/04/2013 Duración: 58s

    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

    09/02/2013 Duración: 01min

    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!

  • Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 7 - By the Limpid Stream

    01/10/2012 Duración: 47s

    Continuing the set of Burgmuller's Op. 100 - this recording is of No. 7, titled "By the limpid stream." I had to look up the meaning of "limpid," which means clear, or transparent. Hearing the recording after the fact, I think I would have taken it a touch slower and muted the inner notes more. I hope you enjoy the recording.

  • Clementi: Sonatina Op. 36 No. 4

    20/09/2012 Duración: 07min

    Here is the next recording in the set of 6 sonatinas by Muzio Clementi - Op. 36 No. 4. Just two more to go! I hope that you enjoy the recording.

  • MacDowell: (To a Wild Rose) Woodland Sketches Op. 51, No. 1

    04/08/2012 Duración: 02min

    This is a very well-known melody by the American composer, Edward MacDowell. He has wonderful music, including this piece, and I encourage pianists everywhere to get to know his music. I hope to record several more of his works over the coming months and years. This piece is often played as prelude or postlude in churches or for weddings. It has a beautiful melody and is accompanied by an equally beautiful harmonic progression. As my first recording of an American composer, I hope that you enjoy it!

  • Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 6 - Progress

    16/07/2012 Duración: 50s

    The next in the set of Etudes by Burgmuller. A fun piece that I highly recommend!

  • Chopin: (Cantabile) Cantabile in B-flat major, B.84

    06/06/2012 Duración: 01min

    A beautiful, short piece by Chopin... his "Cantabile" in B-flat is a well-known work that provides a few subtle challenges wrapped in simple melody and carried by enchanting harmonies. I hope that you enjoy my recording of this work - recorded at home on my 1941 Steinway AIII.

  • Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 5 - Innocence

    05/05/2012 Duración: 42s

    The fifth in Burgmuller's set of 25 etudes for piano. This one is intended to provide practice for developing quick and nimble fingers in the right hand. A fun piece to play and highly recommended.

  • Burgmuller: (Children's Party) Op. 100 No. 4 - Petite reunion

    08/04/2012 Duración: 01min

    The fourth in Burgmuller's set of 25 etudes for piano. This one is intended to provide practice for using thirds in both right and left hands. Recorded on my Steinway AIII, I hope you enjoy the recording!

  • Burgmuller: (Pastoral) Op. 100 No. 3 - Pastorale

    01/04/2012 Duración: 01min

    Here is No. 3 in Burgmuller's set of 24 etudes for piano, Op. 100. Recorded on my Steinway AIII. I hope that you enjoy it!

  • Burgmuller: Op. 100 No. 2 - Arabaseque

    18/03/2012 Duración: 43s

    The second etude in Burgmuller's Opus 100. This one is fairly well recognized. I think I found some better recording settings with this one than I used on the first etude. This was recorded on my Steinway AIII - a fun piece that I hope you enjoy!

  • Burgmuller: (Artless Mind) Op. 100 No. 1 - La candeur

    16/03/2012 Duración: 37s

    The first etude in a set of 25 by Burgmuller. I will be publishing all 25 eventually. This recording was made using a couple of new microphones - nothing fancy, but reduces the noise on my recordings. I hope you enjoy this set of etudes!

  • Franck: Poco Allegretto

    18/09/2011 Duración: 01min

    Here is a short piece by Cesar Franck that I came across in one of my sheet music sets. I love the melody and the way that Franck uses hanging tones to harmonize. This recording is dedicated to a young listener, Sayuri, from Brazil. I hope that she will enjoy listening to this recording!

  • Burgmuller: Harmony of the Angels Op. 100, No. 21

    05/07/2011 Duración: 01min

    A brief work that has some surprisingly difficult dynamics to it. This was recorded at my home on my Steinway A III. I hope that you enjoy this recording.

  • Arnold: Song of the Shepherd Boy

    15/06/2011 Duración: 01min

    A short work by Samuel Arnold (1740-1802). I discovered this piece in a music compliation book by Alfred. This was recorded at my home on my Steinway AIII. I hope that you enjoy it!

  • Burgmuller: Ave Maria (Andante Religioso): Op. 100, No. 19

    10/05/2011 Duración: 01min

    My first recording of a work by Burgmuller. I discovered this work in Alfred's "Classical Music for the Church Service: Volume 2." I apologize in advance if people stumbled on this piece looking for one of the many other works titled, "Ave Maria." :-) This recording was performed at my home on my Steinway A III. I hope that you enjoy it!
