Piano concerto excerpts

Piano Concerto (2006) is published and © by CF Peters. Before the premiere, I went to New York to work with Marilyn Nonken, for whom the piece was written, and she graciously agreed to be filmed playing these short excerpts, minus the orchestra, who were too expensive to bring to New York just be offscreen in a Flip Video.

This one is near the end of the first movement.




This is the first big piano stuff in the finale.



This is the cadenza, near the end of the finale.



This is the brief excerpt before the cadenza in which Marilyn has to play toy piano, and then both piano and toy piano.
