Piano Pieces P to S

All the free Pdf Scores are in blue

Peters Ground 

This was written as a commemoration of the death of a piano pupil and friend.  Peter Prince, who I started teaching piano when he was in his 70’s from scratch.  He got to grade 5 standard.  But apart from this achievement he was a great chap full of interest and stories.  Also for his wife sadly passed away as well Mazry Prince.

Piano Blues in E ish 

A 12 bar blues with a strong chromatic Rhythmic bass.

Piano Sonata

Piano Sonata Movement 1 

This was written during college, the piece should be much more rubato than the computer can do.  In 5 4 this movement explores variations of the opening theme.

Piano Sonata Movement 2 

This movement is much calmer Satie’ish.

Piano Sonata Movement 3 Scherzo 

Wild arpeggiated scherzo.

Piano Sonata Movement 3 Trio 

This is the sandwich filling.

Piano Sonata Movement 4 

Closing argument.

Prelude No 1 

Written in the early 90’s as an answer to playing a lot of Bach.

Prelude No 2 

More tune full perhaps.  A bit romantic.

Psaltery piece for Piano 

This was a little knurdling tune that I created on my Psaltery hence the title.  I then expanded it into a much more substantial piece.

Pulse 

Experimental Piece about rhythmic patterns. Minimilist.

Quiet Piece 4 Emma 

I wrote this about my dog Emma, who was mad in the beginning.  But lived with us for 14 years or more.  She had to be put down in 2008 a bit traumatic.  This piece is a little bit of her nature, including her scratching.  Which found its way into some other pieces of the time.

Quiet Piece for piano 

A duet that has been transcribed for various brass duets.

Ragtime 3 

A ragtime based on a chord circle that I liked to use in the past, it allowed me to write a Piece that went its own way through keys.

Redemption for Piano 

This is a great crescendo of a piece, in 5 4.  It gradually swells throughout the piece.

Rhondo Minuet 

A gentle Rhondo and Minuet together, in 3 4.

Rhythm No 26 

An old piece that tried out different rhythm version.  This is the only one that worked.  Not a great piece but an interesting experiment from the past.

Roy s Jig piano version 

A jig for Roy MacIntosh, a friend and local singer songwriter.

Roy s Waltz 

Same chap, here is a Scottish waltz based on the same theme.

Salutation Jig 

Written in the old Salutation pub, now the Boathouse.  In Anstruther. This is a bit wild must have been a stormy night.

Sarabande for Debbie 

Written in the Ship Pub, Anstruther. (notice a theme playing out here).  Debbie was the barmaid for most of the writing sessions at the time.  This Sarabande is like the ticking of a clock, with implied melodies.
