ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Anthony Newman: Original Works for Piano Solo
Anthony Newman, composer
Anthony Newman, piano

Most of my piano music was written between 1991 to the present, and can be said to be within the boundaries of tonality - some more than others. The set starts with the most recent sonata featuring a fantasia on Stravinsky's "Babel," followed by a rhapsodic slow movement, and then a series of variations on an original theme in B-flat major - very jolly, fanfare-like and audience friendly.

A second sonata, called Sonata of the Americas starts with a large scale and brilliant opening, followed by a fantasia on a South American native melody called "Wipala" and finally with a set of variations on the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

A portrait sonata of great composers follows. Those featured are Debussy (Claire do Lune), Stravinsky (Tango on his piano and wind concerto), Beethoven and Mozart (fugue based on the finale to his Symphony Nr. 41.)

A suite for harpsichord or piano is next, based on Baroque suite movements: Fantasy, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, and Gigue.

Water, earth, wind and fire are represented in the next sonata, based on the basic elements of our universe.

The next work is the oldest in the collection and was premiered at the Theatre de Champs Elysees in Paris in 1991. It is a theme and variations followed by a big scale fugue, based on the celebrated B-A-C-H theme.

The Prelude and Fugue in B-flat starts with a pensive and sad prelude, and is followed by a mini version of Beethoven's "Hammerclavier" fugue. The fugue has the same amount of entrances, stretti, and retrograde versions of the fugue subject as does the great Beethoven example.

The set concludes with a set of thirteen short preludes.

- Anthony Newman
