These four piano pieces were compiled as a set and dedicated to the memory of David Del Tredici.
The idea for "Four a Mentor" was sparked by the recent death of the composer, David Del Tredici with whom Burwasser studied while working toward completing his Ph.D. in composition at the CUNY Graduate School. When hearing of his passing, Burwasser immediately searched for some old pieces he had written under Del Tredici's tutelage during the late 1980s. He unearthed two pieces which were composed with him, Mini Waltz, when Burwasser was tasked to write a piece in the style of Chopin, and a short, jazzy arrangement of the 19th-century Christian hymn and Christmas carol, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. The other two works while not directly associated with Del Tredici, were composed during the same era. Lullaby was written in honor of the birth of a friends niece. The Prelude, originally named Title Sequence, was based on a film project the composer was working on that never came to fruition (like Three Shades of Lenny). All four pieces have been minimally revised.
