Misc. Comments

  • Dreams was inspired by Kurosawa's film of the same title.
  1. "Dream", was written as a "pièce de concours" for the semifinals of the 2013 Queen Elizabeth piano competition.
  2. "Cabrioles", was written for the Swiss pianist Simone Keller.
  3. "A Mensch", is dedicated to the memory of the actor and poet Steve ben Israel.
  4. "Illusions Perdues", was written for the British pianist Ian Pace.

Part II (Nos.5-8, now in progress) will be premiered by Igor Levit in the spring of 2015 at the Heidelberger Frühling festival. The recording, made by Michael Huon, is of a performance I did here in Brussels in February, 2014.
