John Harbison: Four More Occasional Pieces



For piano. The pieces and their occasions are as follows: 1. Minuet (for composer Joan Tower). 2. Gavotte (for Harriet Thiele, manager of the first Token Creek International Chamber Festival) 3. Waltz (for Rose Mary Harbison): an anniversary waltz (1987) for our 24th anniversary 4. Tango (for Milo Feinberg, also for Alan and Janet), a tango “seen from ground level” to welcome Milo into the world. Like the first set of occasional pieces it is an odd, accidental collection, deceptively difficult to play, and pursuing trains of thought rather distinct from the larger pieces I was writing at the same time. — John Harbison
