Étude en violet

I was playing around with these chord sequences and warming up the old Arthritic digits when I thought I would write it down as a study – as I hadn’t actually written anything new in 2018. It seems that any inspiration I had once is completely gone now but anyhow I won’t give up (yet). (Mel)

A lovely piano study piece invoking two contrasting moods. The opening wistful 8 bars in C major is followed by a frenetic and challenging quasi-Beethoven section which quickly sequences through several keys (Cm/Gm/Dm/Am/Em/Bm etc.) before returning to the beautiful melody in C major for the final 32 bars. This would serve as an ideal recital piece. (Musicaneo)
