Program Notes

Once again this composer draws inspiration from his admiration of the piano works of Bela Bartok for young players. Many times in the early "Mikrokosmos" we find Bartok attempting t free young Peter's mind from the "box" mentality by shifting accents in established meters, or, as is done in Holsinger's Gypsydance, shifting keys within a single key signature. The key signature says E-flat, but no...we obviously start in F minor, hop and skip our way through the home key.. and end the piece in B-flat.
