3rd part of "Three Miniatures for Piano"

I have searched for the deepest reasons of happyness, and I found out this: The reason does not lie in making money or possession or luxury, nor in idleness or making business, not in producing or consuming. With happy people I always felt deep security as a reason, spontaneous joy in the small things and a big simplicity. Phil Bosmans, belgian writer.

Each of these three miniatures for piano is a programmatic snapshot telling a story of easy, static things, like the desolate, old plant nursery with rampant undergrowth which I discovered with Benjamin in summer of 2006 not far from our home.

or they tell about the painted triptych of Petra, in his warm Red on which a wave of yellow crystals swims from one picture to the next.

Or, however, they tell about the long way to want to bring a piano concert in three movements to an end.

And thus also Encore, the small addition in pure simplicity, never became the fourth miniature. There are pieces in life which remain small because the origin of all pieces is small. Nevertheless, nothing is too small to be insignificant. At least this is the origin of what we write down in our music, even if it seems to be insignificant for other people.

Enjoy the appropriate mp3 extracted from my piano-works CD "Klavierkonzert Nr.1" released in 2008 on OOMOXX Media Germany.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
