Duration: ca. 15-20 minutes. Lush extended tonal language.Highly chromatic and contrapuntal. An innovative fugue unlike any other in theliterature. This work was begun in 1981 and underwent revisions on and offfor 28 years until it was finally completed in 2009. Thispiece is intended only for first-rate virtuoso pianists. Written comments: "Gary, this is wonderful! I am a Bachfreak ... clearly you are as well (meant as a big compliment smile emoticon ). Love the title too heart emoticon."—Kurt Werderman. " "Completely charming. I get the"Liebes" part, but the other half seems entirely too muchtongue-in-cheek fun for "Schmerz." smile emoticon You wrote a brilliant piecethat sounds so spontaneous it is hard to believe it had such a long gestationperiod as 28 years."—Rodney Punt. "Here is to me really deep music of very highquality. I listened three times. The fugue has the kind of complexity andpositive ambiguity which awakens my curiosity to listen again and again. Theepisodes are for me personally something of the most beautiful modern musicwritten for piano I remember just now."—Frank David.
