From the Stoep (2012)
Three Easy Pieces for Piano Duet
Taking the ‘classic’ duets by Stravinsky as its jumping-off point, here with an easier ‘primo’ part, these vignettes reimagine specifically Southern African (including Madagascan) musics through the lens of the twentieth century piano landscape. They were a response to a request by Antony Gray for his “Il maestro e lo scolare” project, a double CD recorded with some 50 of his students. From the Stoep is dedicated to Stephanus and Elmi Muller and lasts about 8 minutes.
