E.M. am Flügel was written at the request of my good friend, the composer and pianist Eric Moe, who premiered it at the University of Pittsburgh in the spring of 1992. My goal was simply to write something that Eric and, I hoped, other pianists would enjoy playing. The work, which is about six minutes long, indulges in rather intricate contrapuntal and rhythmic writing, but is to my ears predominantly a romantic, lyrical piece which demands a good sense of line and rubato from the performer.
