MICROGRAPHS for Piano, 1979. As the name implies, these are seven “microscopic” pieces which were inspired by micro-photography in a National Geographic article that included images of crystals, diatoms, and other very small entities normally unseen.
Included are three related Microvariations, as well as Crystalline Growth, Crystalline Structure, A Rotifer's Dance and Philodina. Performance time is about 7 minutes.
$5.00 US (sales tax may apply).
Many thanks to Helen Twiss for making the first recording in 1979, included below.
Recording order: Microvariations 1, Crystalline Growth, Microvariations 2, A Rotifer's Dance, Crystalline Structure, Philodina, Microvariations 3. First movement and score samples below.
