The work consists of eight simple miniatures, built up using a specific composition technique, ideal for teaching the piano (such as in DKO). The atmosphere and tonality are of uttermost importance in this book – just like they are in all of Van Marcke’s work.
‘Piano Pieces 1’
The book consists of five compositions in which the composer evokes a post-classical atmosphere, based on a source of inspiration (Mozart – Messiaen – Pachabel…). Technically, these pieces were written for an advanced pianist.
‘Piano Pieces 2’
The book consists of five compositions (among which “Changes”, which was awarded the Bap Sabam – Jazzthema’s Hoeilaart prize) in which the composer works with the idiom ‘written improvisation’ with a number of complex melodic and rhythmical elements. This results in a accessibble and tonal atmosphere.
