“for ALL Americans”

January 20th, 2017 Uncategorized

On this day as President Obama’s successor takes office, I wanted to inform readers that yesterday morning I completed a new set of PIANO VARIATIONS “for ALL Americans” on Hail to the Chief, to coincide with the inauguration. The 36 minute work celebrates our country, its diversity, and its people. The table of contents includes 10 sections:

Fanfare & Theme(s) in quodlibet
Vari. 1 – Arabesques
Vari. 2 – Phelonious blues
Vari. 3 – ¡Nunca pagaremos!
Vari. 4 – Rock solid
Vari. 5 – Tarantella (for the Left Hand)
Vari. 6 – Stronger Together (aka “Judy’s song”)
Vari. 7 – Träumerei
Vari. 8 – Daughters of Freedom
Finale: Marcia putinesca (“Tear down this wall!”)

Within a month, the publisher-perfect version will be available.

“…the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.”
