Sheet Music: Score
Six postcard pieces : for solo piano / David Lumsdaine
by David Lumsdaine (1994)
For me, there are few more extraordinary pieces of music than Beethoven's last set of Bagatelles: resonance, wit, compassion, and an extraordinary sense of irony - and imagery that goes straight to the point. (It takes a most extraordinary musician to play them, too). It has been a lifelong ambition of this composer to create resonance, rather than more crotchets, and these postcard pieces are essays on the way to that goal.
There is also this reward for the listener - you don't have to be told how to listen to these pieces. By the time you've read the programme note, they're finished…— David Lumsdaine
