Instrumentation: Piano, four hands
Duration: ~3 minutes
Year of Composition: 2010
Program Note: This piece is a transcription of a movment from Tapas, a suite of short pieces I wrote a few years earlier for violin and viola duo. It struck me that one of the middle movements of the work, Capriccio Pizzicato, would work particularly well for four-hand piano. This is an ensemble that has always appealed to me for personal reasons. I was a piano major as an undergraduate, and some of my fondest memories are of reading through four-hand piano works with other members of the piano studio at SUNY Stony Brook.
