Piano Piece No. 1

Piano Piece No. 1

for piano solo
(
2005
)

This piano piece is the first one out of a series of 5 works for piano I want to compose . The intention is to deal with a flexible formal structure: the performer is free to choose the order of the 5 pieces and can even choose to play them separately. The first Piano Piece, dedicated to my friend Nikolaas Kende, turns out to be the slow movement from the entity. It consists of an introductory fortissimo, a bell sounding boomingly from where the music spins out. A slow passage follows, based on a simple ostinato, to which 3 layers with audible differing tempo and rhythm are added.
