Long Path To Hopeful Horizons


A delicate melody, laid gently over a spacious 3 - 3 - 10 rhythm. This piece is meant to evoke an optimistic dream, that life is twisting toward a new path, one that holds immense promise for the future, but that will take many years and much hardship to reach.

A simple piece, but quite difficult to perform well. Written for clarity in 3 staves instead of 2. The melody must not be obscured by the dense chords around it - this is not an easy technique to do. You could cheat and perform this piece with two people on two pianos, but that is cheating so don't cheat. It's a good thing for you to be able to emphasize a melody while playing quieter harmony notes in the same hand(s).
