Three Character Studies

Three Character Studies composed by Fred Hersch. For piano solo. Modern. Collection. 15 pages. Duration circa 7 minutes. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P68046).

ISBN M-3007-4956-3. Modern. 9x12 inches.

Three Character Studies are my first set of fully-notated piano pieces. They are studies in that each piece emphasizes a technical or pianistic element; they are character studies because each one is inspired by someone I know. The Nocturne for Left Hand Alone is for my longtime piano teacher, Sophia Rosoff; she has a special fondness for Rachmaninoff and Scriabin. The Little Spinning Song is for fabric artist Penny Sisto. The Study in Thirds and Sixths is for my cat, Spike; though he is now in the great litterbox in the sky, this recalls his spirited and sneaky personality. - Fred Hersch, 2004

1. Nocturne for Left Hand Alone, 2. Little Spinning Song, 3. Study in Thirds and Sixths.

    A lifelong casual piano student and sometimes performer, I fell in love with some of Fred Hersch's music, especially Chorinho: Study in Thirds & Sixths. It's somewhere between a tango and Ragtime, with catchy harmonic shifts . I'm finding it a little more difficult to learn than I had...

    expected.It's a lovely break for me from Mozart, Beethoven, et al.
