Le Portrait de Daisy Hamilton (Volume 1: Twelve Piano Pieces). Composed by Charles Koechlin (1867-1950). For Piano (Piano). Piano. 36 pages. Schott Music #ED20175. Published by Schott Music (HL.49016702).
Koechlin (1867-1950) was an extremely prolific French composer in virtually every genre. In the 1930s, he became fascinated with motion pictures with sound, and also became obsessed with film star Lillian Harvey. Conceived as 89 different vignettes for piano and other instruments, Le Portrait de Daisy Hamilton is a thinly veiled tribute to Lillian Harvey. Published here for the first time.
