Album Summary

Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although others, famous in their day and even more so today, have composed their own 24 preludes, I dared this undertaking because I do not feel as though I have copied anyone. I also humbly believe that writing them has been a personal and honest process. Why 24? One for each of the major and minor keys in the tonal system - and I accept and lay claim to the label of tonal composer. Which is not to say that my writing style is like that of centuries past, nor that I have rejected schools that broke with traditional tonality. I simply feel more in tune with myself this way. That said, I do believe that this music, composed in earnest, is contemporary. In some respects, it draws inspiration from jazz, pop music, and the broad repertoire of French piano music; it is both all of that and none of it.
