After starting university last September, I have not written any solo piano pieces, I apologize to all of my wonderful friends for having been inactive on the uploading front. However, I have not been idle and have been working on several other chamber music pieces which I will also upload as soon as I’m able to record them. I hope that you enjoy my new composition.
A month ago during one of our weekly studio classes with piano professor Dr. Corey Hamm, a student brought in the first movement of Rachmaninoff’s 2nd piano concerto. Dr. Hamm told us that the key to playing the famous piano introduction was to learn to revel in the beauty of a simple chord. This approach helped me in writing and recording of this piece which has a very simple two part form based essentially on four chords. Throughout the piece, I try to really acknowledge and feel the emotional impact that comes with each different chord. For this reason, it takes a long time for me to move from one section to another.
