Orchids: Six Pieces for Solo Piano
Genre: Keyboard piano
Description: A cycle of six solos for piano, especially written for a number of leading pianists
Duration: 41 minutes
A series of works for solo piano, the exotic floral image of the series title suggesting common patterns which underlie gradual changes in the music. Each is a variegated single movement form in which the sections fold into each other, like waves or petals, disturbing and interrupting the surface polyphony.
