I had a few other pieces in mind for this challenge, but couldn’t make it. This piece, I wanted to submit, because it’s kind of special. It sounds a little weird, at times. I like the harmonies, Tuning in F. Technically it’s not too complicated, but s difficult to ‘balance the contrasts’.
It’s from a series of piano pieces (for children!) by Czech composer Leoš Janáček (1854-1928). I lived in Prague and got the score from one of Pavel’s students. Pavel Steidl made the transcription. I heard him play a duo version.
