Three Études for Piano by Nico Muhly . “In preparation for writing a large (uncompleted) work for piano, I decided to write three short pieces to get certain musical tics out of my system. Each of these three études addresses a specific rhythmic and harmonic gesture: the first, Ostinati, focuses on a gently lilting left hand contrasted with angular outbursts in the right hand, usually in octaves. The second étude, “Quiet Music,” concerns itself with drones and chant-like music, and the third, “Running,” explores slowly shifting harmonies pitted against very fast cross-hand playing.” – Nico Muhly , 2003These three études were written from January to March 2003 and were composed partially for performance in the VisionIntoArt/RockHotelPianoFest in New York City. Étude #3 (“Running”) was premiered by Eric Huebner and is dedicated to him.
