Jennifer Jolley Democracy Dies in Darkness for solo piano

!

 


Instrumentation Solo Piano

Performance Notes Pianist must only use second (and quite possibly third) fingers of each hand when performing this piece. Cells are to be played consecutively with each performer having the freedom to determine how many times they will repeat each cell before moving onto the next. This excludes cells with glissandi. Micro pauses must be included after each cell is performed (this includes repeated cells).

Program Note The mechanics of this piece was inspired by The Post, a film that depicted the risky decision of Katharine Graham and Ben Bradlee of the Washington Post to publish a series of articles based on the Pentagon Papers. This was written as part of Nick Phillips's #45miniatures project.
