Misc. Comments

This is Todd Michael-Michael Sisca's entirely original musical setting of the Last Temptation of Jesus Christ. The text is also Todd Michael-Michael Sisca's entirely original conception, as well.

This piece was originally begun in 2004-2005 as a Prelude fore the left-hand-alone...It was further revised years later and completed for publication in 2010 as Todd's "Self-Portrait-Etude #1 in G-sharp-minor (Op.1, no.1)".

In December of 2012, Todd then added to the piano-part an original text and voices depicting Mary, Jesus, and Satan at the time of The Last Temptation [as the composer conceived the story, that is].

The piece demands a coloratura-soprano of appreciable-virtuosity to pull-off the MAGICAL-MUSICAL-MOMENT when Mary quotes from the Catholic Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

The composer sometimes performs (live in recitals) this piece exactly as the piano-part is written as his "Self-Portrait-etude #1 in G-sharp-minor for left-hand-alone (Op.1, no.1)"...Pianists of romantic, virtuosic, and cantabile inclination - [in the manner of Chopin, Liszt, and Rachmaninov] - may absolutely perform this work as a solo piano composition written for left-hand-alone...

...AUDIENCES ARE ALWAYS STUNNED BY IT'S BEAUTY, DRAMA, ORIGINALITY,LEFT-HAND-VIRTUOSITY, AND PIANISTIC SONORITY.
