Saloon Songs by Fred Hersch. For piano solo. Modern. Intermediate. Collection. 13 pages. Duration circa 7 minutes. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P68107).
ISBN M-3007-5033-0. Modern. 9x12 inches.
Charming melodies from the jazz master capture the style of the early 20th Century dances, which are updated with mid-20th century harmonies (including dramatic chromaticisms, and passages reminiscent of Leonard Bernstein's music). Hersch says of his work: 'The inspiration for 'Saloon Songs' comes from my colorful mental images of Lower Manhattan in the early part of the 20t 20th Century. . . 'Four-Part Slow Drag' is sweet and a bit melancholy. 'The Last Call Waltz' is a darkly comic evocation of the last, slightly desperate moments of an inebriated patron's evening at a downtown saloon. And 'The Bowery Rag' is in classic ragtime form. ' Intermediate level, with some 10ths in the left hand.I. Four-Part Slow Drag, II. The 'Last Call' Waltz, III. Bowery Rag.
Song(s) in this release:
  • I. Four-Part Slow Drag
