    Chase of the Grim Reaper

    Here is my latest creation. I sat down to my computer and piano keyboard about 8 PM, and piece in this post is the results. I completed it about 2:30 PM. Of course as I said in the General Post, I was watching television and composed this during the commericals. This was done just for fun.

    The title of this piece is "Chase of the Grim Reaper."

    Hey Samantha,

    That Reapers not so grim, but theres definitely a suggestion diabolique in there! I thought I might be listening to Nancarrow taking on on Chopin's Op.10 #3 at the start.

    A very entertaining way to keep those late night ads at bay!

    This would have made a great Horowitz encore! What a lot of energy and drive; it's a real endurance test for a pianist; but as I don't play the piano, I can just sit back and listen... And enjoy.

    All the best,

    What a whimsical story, Samantha, how this is what you do during TV commercials! hehe--I love it.

    Adventures in Chromaticism!

    One picture I had was of a rebellious piano student taking those awful finger exercises and improvising on them so they're more interesting.

    The other picture I had - How this could be a great thing for a pianist to play for accompanying a melodramatic silent movie!

    Thanks for the fun post, Samantha.

    Very cool, Samantha!

    I have tried to play this on my piano, but I can`t play with this energy and drive....

    Best,

    Wow, if this is what you do for "fun," I really want to hear your next "not for fun, work, serious" piece.
    As a trombonist, your digital dexterity absolutely overwhelms me.

    Whew! *****

    This is played by Finale using GPO Steinway. I couldn't play this fast if Grim and Satan himself were after me. This is for the young virtuoso pianist who still like to show off their skills.

    Most assuredly a very, very grim study, Samantha!

    This reminds me a great deal of the etudes of one
    Carl Czerny, one of Franz Liszt's instructors, for
    whom Liszt later dedicated his marvelous Transcendental
    Etudes
    .

    Certainly a workout!

    Best,

    Samantha,

    I doubt that the Grime Reaper will ever have to work this hard! You almost wore the GPO piano out!

    Faster, faster.

    Look out! Get out of the way of those flying fingers.

    Exhausting just to listen to.
