Quick Overview

Morning Music, a new work for piano, four hands by Peter Schickele, is written to be played at sunrise, in the manner of an Indian raga, though its musical style bears no resemblance to the raga itself. Schickele describes this work as “a string of beads; each bead is a concentrated, somewhat static musical section. One of these sections is fast and driving, another is languid, others flow in a songlike manner, but they all have a rather hypnotic quality… "This piece was not commissioned; it simply wanted to be written. It was first performed by Jack Behrens and the composer on February 6, 1983 at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.” For advanced players. Duration: 11’
