Happy Halloween! My kids are in bed, the festivities are done, and I have a moment to release the next Miniature. This fifth Miniature, subtitled “Moto Minimalismo Minuetto,” clearly contains an influence from the minimalist aesthetic. Every once in a while, as with the previous Hommage to Vierne, I feel the need to briefly explore something that I haven’t before. My general problem with much of the Minimalist repertoire is it is often too long-winded for my taste. I tried to balance my need for change without changing too much, adding a little at a time in a minimalist manner. It was an interesting exercise that I think produces some nice results – and don’t forget, you can get the score here!
