Two Piano Preludes

These pieces have actually been available for months, but I’ve realized that the only thing stopping me from getting back in blogger shape is myself. During this time I’ve had a stupor of though about the fate of this blog, seeing as my train of thought which had been running a clear direction three years ago suddenly took a very large turn. Whatever the case, I will never give up composition as a hobby, but my output will be more limited in terms of variety. Because I probably will not study the orchestral arranging and directing in the near future, I aim to steer in the direction of writing for small ensembles, if not simply for solo piano. The piano has enough grandeur to give me as a performer suitable happiness because of its already immense capacity as a solo instrument.

Well here I finally present to you two pieces that I hope can give you a sense of hope as you play. I also hope that one day one of my pianist friends will be able to record these for me without all the mistakes that I make in doing so so that these sounds would be enjoyable to listen to as well.

I haven’t much to say about anything that I write, except that the subtitle for this piece is indeed taken from the nursery rhyme about the demise of an egg, but additionally and more accurately alludes to a specific story in the Book of Mormon.

I find the nearly ternary simplicity in the form of this piece quite pleasing. But alas, it can’t always be this way.

It is difficult to classify this music in terms of form and I really don’t feel qualified in giving names to my creations, so at this time these will be known as preludes. But as always, I leave the rest up to imagination.
