October Wind

13 songs for solo piano

Composer Rebecca Oswald’s “October Wind” songbook is a retrospective collection of thirteen pieces for solo piano written between 1981 and 2005, spanning her evolution from new age songwriter to contemporary classical composer. With strong, flowing melodies, tonal/triadic harmonies, and clear form, each song offers a unique journey to a gorgeous landscape of color and emotion. One of the pieces is for right hand alone. The coil bound book has 55 pages of music, one prefatory page addressing technique and markings, individual song difficulty rankings ranging from VI to VIII out of X, and a list of similarly ranked classical repertoire pieces for comparison.
