    Hello,

    I would like to submit this new piano work written by the very young and talented composer, who is also a great friend of mine - Scott Wollschleger (b.1980). I feel a lot of expression, color and Scriabin influence in his music. Here is a program note:

    Blue Inscription (2010)

    The piano has a special kind of resonance. Notes and harmonies are able to blend together and create a blurry, almost hazy effect. Sounds also have a unique characteristic of fading away on the piano. They will move towards a disappearance, as if to remind us that they are living and will also leave us. When I write for the piano I try to embrace this particular aspect of the piano. My synesthesia is what guided my ear in writing Blue Inscription. From this subjective position, the piece is a little song and a subtle expression. The writing, for the most part, is lean and transparent; this allows us to clearly hear the fading away and blending of notes, like vapors that hover for a moment and then drift away.

    I hope that you enjoy the piece!!! This is the composer's web site: http://www.scottwollschleger.com

    Warm regards,

    Tania

    Quite sweet, and well-played, but not much substance to justify the slightly portentous blurb. Just my two cents.
