Robert Helps, Piano tour

Piano Music by Robert Helps

Nocturne (1973) [piano solo]

Single movement work of grand conception: haunting ostinati vie with rhapsodic figures and unsettled harmonies for control of the piece. “Of jagged dreams” writes Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe.
Nocturne was recorded by Grammy-nominated pianist Alan Feinberg on his CD entitled “The American Romantic.”

Duration: 10 minutes

“Night” from Poem of the Atlantic by
Spanish Symbolist painter J. Nestor.
