Prelude No. 1 (Jazz) For Piano

(2007) (Duration: c. 2 mins.)


Program notes: My first prelude for piano was written in the summer of 2007. I am planning this work to be the first in a series of short piano preludes which currently has no plans for completion. This prelude is in a jazz style partially influenced by Gershwin and Kapustin. Keane Southard 2007

Performance instructions: 1. Unless otherwise indicated, the damper pedal should be used discreetly to allow for maximum clarity.
