The FJH Pianist's Curriculum

Travels Through Sound

Emma Lou Diemer

This book expands the standard repertoire with colorful techniques and textures by providing excellent contemporary music that expresses visual and emotional ideas. All of the pieces are highly suggestive of their titles: Fist Dance (play with the fists); A Harp in the Sky (dampening the strings); Old Spanish Town (tapping on the music rack); Go Fourth (a consistent interval); and some that are forceful and rhythmic - Out of Africa, The Kangaroo, and We Won the Race. This composer creates interesting music that excites the imagination, yet remains communicative.
