Aaron Copland's "Scherzo Humoristique," written in 1920, is indeed musically humorous as it depicts the skittering rodent and sinister feline in a demanding, but very enjoyable etude setting, using complex 1/16 note patterns, glissando, grace notes, chromatic scale work, and a generous use of the entire keyboard. There are sudden shifts in tempo and dynamics, and the performer tells a definite story, albeit without narration. Large hand reaches, sometimes 9ths, are required on some of the full bl...

The six pieces which make up this set were composed over a number of years and explore a range of styles. "Characteristic pieces" is a collective title which has been used by many composers, especially of the Romantic period, for a group of shorter pianocompositions held together by a common factor. In this instance, however, the term haracteristic' has been applied somewhat loosely and refers to the diversity of the distinct styles within the set. For intermediate to advanced players.

It encouraged Mike Cornick to write eight more pieces in similar styles. The result was an album of refreshing new compositions at a medium level of difficulty. Among them are two arrangements for solo piano: "Waltz for Laura" and "Be-Bop" - two pieces originally written for piano four hands. They first ap...
