Quick Overview

Written in 1942 and revised in 1996, these four extraordinary pieces by one of the great American originals, show Henry Brant's complex approach to traditional tonality in concentrated form. Each piece ("Last Mile," "Parlor Lizard," "Smudged Lenses" and Skeleton Stampede") uses elements of the American musical vernacular to create highly stylized concert pieces with a pronounced jazz flavor. Unusual and exciting concert material for the adventurous pianist and a fine introduction to the music of an important American master.
