Programme Note
John Harbison A Bag of Tails (codas for solo piano) (2016)
Composer note:
A Bag of Tails (codas for solo piano) is a collection of very short pieces, each dedicated to a pianist whose playing I cherish.

One of the things a composer learns is how to recognize the stamina of musical ideas. Some need a half hour to grow and to thrive, others, valuable in another way, require a short span.

These pieces are evidence of the latter phenomenon.

A very rewarding amusement was finding a good sequence for the set.

I thank David Flachs and David Fetherolf, the great G. Schirmer Production Department, for preparing this Limited Edition.

— John Harbison
