Quatre Préludes

piano

Quatre Préludes for piano by a former jazz musician with a penchant for improvisation. The result is lively and spontaneous music with a freshness of its own.

“During martial law in Poland in 1983, a provincial theater commissioned music from me for three short one-act plays – the role of music was limited to filling the stage pauses, during which the decorations were rearranged. This theater did not have much funds, but it cooperated with a good pianist, so I came up with four short pieces for solo piano – the first to start, the second and third as cut-scenes between scenes and the last at the end. Nothing came of this collaboration in the end, but I wrote these pieces and when Piotr Lachert, visiting Poland, asked me if I had something for piano, I remembered these four pieces. Piotr took the sheet music to Brussels, where he lived at the time, and showed it to his friend, who had just started a sheet music publishing house and it was he who released these four pieces.”

These Preludes were recorded by Belgian pianist Mireille Gleizes on the CD Sit Down and Listen : Alain Van Kerckhoven Production AVK001.
