BEAD ROCK for solo piano composed by Ana Leira Carnero. Approx duration 5 minutes. 'Bead Rock' is the third movement of my Piano Sonata No.3 'Mondana'; but also it may be performed as a standalone concert piece, and I encourage pianists to play it in that way. The title is a play on words, and refers to a spherical jewel like a pearl, but also refers to the main motif (which comprises the notes B, E, A, D) and Rock as a musical genre. Composition was influenced by George Gershwin, Jelly Roll Morton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Nikolai Kapustin and Keith Emerson, and it includes a funny quote from the J.S.Bach's Italian Concerto. The jazzy style of this piece may be defined as avant-garde, crossover, free-jazz, fusion, modern creative, third stream or jazz-rock. The sheet music is highly detailed, with complete fingering and pedal marking. The tempo indication is 'veloce con veemenza' (vehemently fast). So, let's rock!!!
