Piano four hands or two pianos

Commissioned by Lori Laitman in honor of her grandson, Edward Milton Rosenblum on his second birthday.

There’s not much to say about these pieces except that they were a joy to compose. Occasional music is some of the most
fun music to write because of its very personal nature. In this case, I am honored to have been asked by Lori Laitman to write a series of pieces in honor of her grandson, Edward Milton Rosenblum’s second birthday on August 30, 2017, and for his parents, James Rosenblum and Ana Gligvashvili to perform.
The pieces, for piano duet or two pianos, are loosely modeled on movements from Robert Schumann’s rightly famous
Kinderscenen (Scenes from Childhood). Here and there are snippets of the pieces on which each movement is based.
Besides honoring a remarkable young man, these pieces returned to me the joy of composition during a difficult period. For
that, I will be ever grateful to Lori.
