Night Journey for Piano Solo


‘Night Journey’ is a collection of 24 short pieces, from Grades 4 to 8 in difficulty. Although quite straightforward in terms of harmonic and technical difficulty, these pieces explore a wide range of pianistic sounds and textures. The music is often highly expressive and essentially melancholic. Night Journey is loosely based on the key structure of Chopin’s Preludes, and each piece can be performed individually or together as a complete set.
