I was not a fan of "modern music" until I discovered Domenico Scarlatti. In 18th century Italy, he was using polytonality, tone clusters, blue notes and chance music. (In some of the extended hand crossing sections, the performer has no idea what note he is going to play next.) After having played a dozen of his Sonatas, I decided to write my own. It really only goes one step farther than Scarlatti actually did.

"very cleverly written and quite witty, and would make a good encore piece" - Igor Kipnis
