Hi,

These are two recordings of myself performing a selection of two of my works for solo piano.

Work In G major

Work In C major

This is from my classical music collection. I really love the classical music genre and I enjoy creating this kind of music. I don't see any conflict with this genre and the more modern cinematic music that I also enjoy composing and performing. I think composers should branch out and explore new soundworlds you can only learn and progress from it.

Scores are attached,

Best Wishes,

Saul Gefen

    Certainly agree with that. Eclecticism will win the day,

    I don't write cinematic music and have forgotten what key signatures are about but I found these pleasant peaceful pieces. Easy just to close eyes and relax.

    Fascinating though, to play them simultaneously up to the end of the C major piece. As the keys are closely related it seems to work.

    Nice.

    Cheers, Dane.

  • Thank You Dane!

  • Very well done Saul. Melody, harmony, counterpoint all very nicely handled.  These are simple, unpretentious and very appealing. Thanks for posting.

  • Thank you Ingo for your kind comments.

  • Saul, I think you shine as a composer pianist. This work reflects that well. Nice!

  • Thank You Tim!

  • Dear Saul,

    especially the first piece is such a tender and beautiful gem of music! I love it very much and reminds me of the transcendence of some of Bach'spiano works. Thank you!

  • Thank You Gerd!

  • I enjoyed these a lot, Saul. Simple, lyrical, and very intimate. The G major piece does seem the more fully developed of the two, and I agree with Gerd, it does remind me a great deal of Bach's keyboard writing. The C major could maybe be developed further? I haven't looked at the score, but I think you end it in the dominant (G), which adds to an impression (for me anyway) of incompleteness.

  • Thank you Liz,

    I think that the second one is also in G major now that I think about it more carefully. The piece begins with a dominant g major on the right hand, the left hand gives the harmony that begins in C but I think that the right hand had set the key of the entire piece, that is why it flows naturally towards the G major. I think I will change that and title it Work In G major No. 2

    Thanks for listening.
