    Default 1988 Piano Recital

    Hello everyone,

    I want to identify this song that was played by my sister at her piano recital many years ago.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Tom

    For some reason, the website won't allow me to access the file. I'm not sure why.

    Edit: nevermind, okay listening.

    Update, okay: I am the wrong person to answer this question, as its not my area of expertise. But I don't know, it sounds a little like Ligeti etude or something, but I could be way off. Hopefully someone who knows more about this kind of music can help you.

    Thanks for that, there are so many composers out there. I am continuing my search on Youtube, not an easy task...

    UPDATE: Listening to some Bela Bartok piano solos, the material sounds kind of close, maybe its him, but haven't found the song yet.

    Are there other composers with a similar style?

    I'm thinking Messiaen. I don't know his piano output that well, so I can't promise anything, but if you're going through a lot of stuff anyway, it's not a bad tip, I think.

    It's a real puzzler based on such a short excerpt. Do you have any more context that might help?

    Messaien and Ligeti are both kinda plausible - although it doesn't really feel like either of them. Re Ligeti, I don't think it's from Musica Ricercata or Etudes book 1 - and the rest of the etudes are later I believe.

    Could be anyone tho! Enjoy listening

    Sounds like Ginastera.

    Attached is a longer sequence. Much of this piece sounds redundant to me, though there are moments that make it unique, and this clip should reveal those. I am starting to think the piece is not well known, not sure how my sister could have ended up selecting it for her recital. The first piece she played was Mozart Piano Concerto #20, K 466 - 2. Romance, kind of like playing a tune from the Beetles, then all heck breaks loose.
