AN AMERICAN TRIPTYCH
for solo piano (2001):
Rag-Quodlibet (2:07)
Ulrich Urban, piano.
Capstone CPS-8732
A quodlibet is a musical patchwork, especially loved by the Bach family.  Swing bass, with snatches of Joplin, and a hunting horn 'Turkey in Straw'!

AN AMERICAN TRIPTYCH:
Bellagio Blues (3:53)
​Written at Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio retreat, the blues in modern dress.

AN AMERICAN TRIPTYCH:
Hoedown (2:35)
​Rough and tumble, with snippets of American folk songs, as well as Prokofieff, for some quodlibet goofiness, ending in a contrapuntal free-for-all!
