Piano Piece #4

For Solo Piano

Piano Piece #4 is the fourth movement of my piano cycle Set of Five, which takes its title from the wonderful Henry Cowell piece of the same name and serves as a gesture of homage for the New Albion CD recording that looped through my brain on a near-constant basis in my young twenties. An obviously pained work, it is the largest and “weightiest” in the set, and seems to defy title placement.
Performance Note: the work should be played with a maximum amount of sentiment and angst. This is not the type of piece that benefits from a cool and detached interpretation.
