With Mark Lackey's Starscapes (2013, revised 2015) the pianist paints colorfully imagined alien worlds, now bold, now capricious, now stark and frozen, now delicate and vaporous. Harmony negotiates between the dodecaphony of classical serialism, the mystical stasis of minimalism, and a rich tonal romanticism, and melodies emerge that range from jagged to lyrical. A strong pulse propels the work throughout, even with occasional shifts in tempo and frequent changes of meter. With regard to register, the frequent use of the lowest notes and the highest notes on the instrument creates a sense of space, of the surreal. Technically the piece uses only conventional, on-the-keys playing, yet it makes considerable demands on the performer, making this an ideal work for a piano recital.
