The finale to my Klangfarben I - V Chamber Symphony.. the five pieces now total 18:10.. in the finale i was interested in the canonic, polyphonic, contrapuntal and fugal aspects of the structure as well as the timbral, dynamic, syntactical and temporal dimensions.

This modern piano piece is dynamically and technically brilliant. Elloquently speaking the language of our time. Abstract but with the classical contrasts in expression from lyrically sublime to violently explosive. For any medium needing exciting virtuosic challenging music.

Part 1 of Klangfarben I - V, a chamber symphony. In German Klangfarben translates literally as "sound colors", an apt description of these pieces which employ a vast array of colors through harmony, melody, orchestration, rhythm, timbre and attack/decay. Perfect as for films, TV, documentaries. Instrumental, Classical Music, 21st Century
