Music 177-191: A second little suite in fifteen sketches

Hello everyone

This is to advertise the second little suite of 15 sketches for the piano.

I post them here because I have no clue what else I am meant to do with the things! Perhaps Lucas Debargue or Yuja Wang will stumble across these pieces and declare they’re just what they’ve been looking for! (Yeah right!)

I realize that the style is not everyone’s cup of tea. This A Second Little Suite in Fifteen Sketches comes on the heels of the first little suite of fifteen sketches! If you’re into playing the piano, this second batch is generally more difficult than the first lot. Feel free to use them. Clicking here will download a pdf file that contains the written piano music and each piece has a link so you can hear the music.

Here also is a list of links to the audios if you don’t need to see the written music!

1452. Truly blessed

Alana was a fabulous concert pianist. She gave concerts all over the world. Critics raved. Audiences swooned.

“God has truly blessed you,” said Bethany.

“God has blessed me, my foot!” said Alana. “My talent is the result of hard work. I practised for hours as a kid. My ability has nothing to do with the fiction you call God. It has everything to do with me and me and me. Grow up.”

You wouldn’t believe it, but Alana died. “I had no idea that heaven was real,” said Alana arriving at the pearly gates. “I thought all this heaven stuff was a load of hogwash.”

“What would you like to do?” asked God (in a booming voice). “Who would you like to be?”

“I want to be the greatest pianist that ever existed,” said Alana.

WOOSH! Her request was answered immediately. There she was on a distant planet somewhere in the constellation of Piscis Austrinus. There sat the perfect grand piano. Alana began to play.

“I am truly blessed,” thought Alana.

Eventually it dawned on her. She was the only one on the planet.
