These five solos (Mise-en-scenes #1 to #5) constitute Book 1. They are piano arrangements of previously commissioned works for film, stage or concert music.
Each of these solos can be perfomed separately. A mise-en-scène is a term used in film and theatre. It refers to a visual image of a situation in which all the elements in the image combine to communicate a dramatic moment. The five solos are either exact transcriptions from the original scores or arrangements to express the essence of the original scenes from the film or theatre productions. Hence the use of the term mise-en-scène as these solos capture the musical drama of each of the original scenes. Musically, the solos explore asymmetrical phrasing and meters combined with seven note modal (# 1 to #4) or eight note scalar (#5) harmonies.
Duration: 14 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Mise-en-scènes 1 and 4 are easy. Mise-en-scènes 2, 3 & 5 range are advanced.
Contents note: Mise-en-scène #1 -- Mise-en-scène #2 -- Mise-en-scène #3 -- Mise-en-scène #4 -- Mise-en-scène #5.
