A Collection of 7 Pieces for Solo Piano
"This collection consists of short pieces written over a period of 14 years. I put it together partly out of a desire to be performed more widely as a composer (since much of what I've written so far is considerably more demanding) and partly because of an attraction I feel towards quiet and intimate music of this nature.
This is a colleciton rather than a suite, so the individual pieces are not numbered and their order as published is arbitrary. Although I have done so many times in the past, I do not think it advisable to perform this set in its entirety, since all of its components are of a similarly subdued character. Instead, I would recommend choosing three, four, or five pieces, presented in any order the perform judges to be musically suitable.
Should this collection be performed as a whole after all, the total duration is arouhd 21-22 mihnutes, and the order of the pieces can be different from what appears here." (Marc-André Hasmelin)
