Here it is:
“Middle East Desert”, PianoTweet of the Month February 2011
Technically spoken and following PianoTweets’s formula, this piece is not a real PianoTweet.
Because the number of notes exceeds widely the famous number of 140.
But it’s a promise to you, my dear listeners:
the PianoTweet of the Month will be an extended version of the original PianoTweet.
I’m not surprised about your choice.
History is made in the Middle East and Northern Africa these days.
When composing and playing the original piece,
the events in Egypt had my particular attention.
Today it’s Libya: what will it be next month…?
The strong pedal tone, the insisting, hammering base keys
illustrate the enormous and deep impact of what’s happening in this region of our world.
