Composed by Alexandra Eddy. 20th Century,Contemporary. Score. 18 pages. Alexandra Eddy Project #4887035. Published by Alexandra Eddy Project (A0.1025463).

The title of this 14-minute piece reflects the fact that it was commissioned by my dear late friend Edwin Good to perform on his beautiful Thomas and Barbara Wolf copy of the very first piano. (Cristofori, 1700). It is playable on the modern piano as well. The movements are as follows:

1. In Medias Res: Fanfare (begins at 0:00 in the mp3 file) is a showy, energetic, brief, humorous beginning.

2. Ricercar (begins at 0:33 in the mp3 file) uses the imitative techniques of 16th century instrumental music, with modern harmonies.

3. For JSB (begins at 3:25 in the mp3 file) was composed in loving homage to Johann Sebastian Bach.

4. Burlesca (begins at 6:15 in the mp3 file) is another moment of humor and energy.

5. Nocturne (begins at 8:04 in the mp3 file) is, of course, night music.

6. Passacaglia (begins at 11:04 in the mp3 file) continues without break from the Nocturne. In the left hand, a pattern of several notes repeats many times, organizing the music. Simultaneously, the right hand quotes fragments from the other movements.

NOTE: The mp3 file is automated, but gives a rough sense of the music.
