Suite for Creative Pianists
Suite for Creative Pianists, by Ayumi Okada
For Solo Piano, Late Intermediate, 28 Pages
Ayumi Okada's "Suite for Creative Pianists" was commissioned by Abundant Silence in honor of the 2021 Festival for Creative Pianists participants. This suite contains four pieces: I. Welcoming the Sun, II. Forget Me Not, III. Snowy Mountain, and IV. The Star Festival.
Each of the four pieces in the suite contains creative elements like melodic and harmonic improvisation, composition of dynamics, performance interpretation, and more. Also included is a reference version for three of the pieces so that performances can compare Okada's choice with their own.
