NEWEST PUBLICATION !!! October 2011
"Three Close Friends" Op.182
Newly published by FJH (E1070)
for SIX HANDS at ONE PIANO
This is a fabulous piece that can be enjoyed by children as well as adults.
It's fun to play, fun to listen to and was fun to compose. It was commissioned by NEPTA member, Eleanor McLaughlin and three of her students who have performed the piece to great acclaim on several occasions. It was performed in France by faculty members of the Mons Conservatoire, Belgium in 2009 .
FJH chose not to include a synthesized CD of the work that I made for practice purposes at three different tempi. We all know how difficult it is to get 3 students together at one time to rehearse. This CD allows them the possibility to practice the piece individually so that when they come together things will work better.
I will be happy to make this CD available to anyone interested.
