description
Poems is a cycle which currently consists of twelve pieces for piano. The pieces were composed to be also suitable for performance by children, although the demands for each piece vary considerably. All the pieces are extremely short and concentrated. My aim was to undertake a personal exploration of this “miniature form”. Each title is associated with (auto)biographical connotations of the (tonal) self, particularly as the starting point for some of these movements delves far back into my past history. Some of the pieces are very easy, for example (The day) when I lost my funny green dog or Babu Chiris house. These stand in contrast to others with specific technical demands (e.g. clusters in MUI 1, slightly prepared piano in eins, zwei, drei, vier, neun and the crossing of hands in Frida schläft ein). (Thomas Larcher)
