Description: Most of the pieces here fall into a "Light Classical" genre, the preludes being in French, Spanish, Russian, Scottish, German and English styles, the Bagatelles being "after" Pergolesi, Grieg and Bridge and the jazz pieces self-explanatory. The last three items in the list above are, however, "serious" concert music which uses various techniques, both traditional and contemporary (sometimes freely tonal), to produce compact, emotionally appealing and often taut and tense little compositions (none is over nine minutes in length). Louis Demetrius Alvanis (piano).
