The Anne Landa Preludes

Sheet music
Carl Vine's The Anne Landa Preludes is a set of twelve brief and highly contrasted pieces of piano solo repertoire, composed in 2006. A short passage of text accompanies each prelude - not so much program notes, as stray reflections and idle curiosities linked in some way to the time or process of composition. From the opening `Short Story' to the concluding `Chorale', these inventive works (lasting a total of 22 minutes, though also performable separately) offer a fantastic showcase for any pianist.
