One minute wonders : twenty-four preludes for piano in all keys / by Paul Sarcich.

Work Overview

These are intended to be teaching rather than concert pieces, but that does not preclude concert performance.


- to provide a set of studies in 24 keys, each about 1min in length

- to write in traditional forms but give them a contemporary edge

- to provide exercises in particular techniques and styles

- to make the pieces challenging but not unattainable for piano students who are at intermediate passing to higher level

- to make the pieces somewhat quirky and "unpredictable" as part of the challenge

The somewhat tongue-in-cheek mottos at the heads of some of the pieces are there to encourage a sense of fun in the approach, even though each piece is a serious exercise in style, form or technique. They are however, open to experiment on the part of the player.
