for piano

Description

I find it difficult to predict how others will react to my works. I thought that the last piece I wrote, Piano Trio, was a dark and unsettling composition only to have people tell me that they pictured peaceful nature scenes.

I think Circus Dreams, my second piano solo, is a bit eclectic, with references to jazz, musicals and pop. I imagine the music as accompanying the acts in a small circus, while not actually imitating circus music. The themes transition in unexpected ways as things do in dreams.

I would love to hear your impressions.
