The Two Studies forsolo piano written in 1992 peck and impact in slow progression - again sounding both familiar in the style of Bach yet dissected in an unhurried and surprisingly avant-garde exhibition. The second study moves to slough off thefirst at about 6.03. The second glitters in Mozartian gemwork.
