Product Details


Product Description

     An advanced work for solo piano, Passacaglia adheres to traditions established for works in this genre, including the Passacaglia in C Minor (BWV582) by Johann Sebastian Bach and contemporary works by Walter Piston and Samuel Barber.
     The main subject is an ostinato bass built on a 12-tone row. Two freely chromatic counter-subjects mark the first and second of the variations which follow. In spite of its classical traditions, a great deal of expressiveness is intended for performance for this work.
     Duration is approximately six minutes. There are 8 pages of score. The audio examples were excerpted from Richard Fountain's recorded performance on his debut CD, American Ivory. Richard's performance is also available on the album Modern Music for Piano, Vol. 2, on the RMN Classical Label.
