In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

528 I Anthony Iannaccone (1943–) USA Sarabande (Tenuto 2003) 3pp. 3 min. Expressive with a little rubato and stately atmosphere. Developing ideas lead to a brief accelerando which grows to ff before subsiding for a quiet ending at pp stretching across the keyboard. M-D. Partita 1967 (ECS 695). Prelude: lively and fanciful. Sarabande: broad and lyric. Burlesca: boisterous and sassy. Gigue: dashing, meter changes. Mainly homophonic , tricky, mild twentieth-century style. M-D. Michael A. Iatauro (1943–)USA Children’s Pieces for Adults (PIC 1975). A charming and whimsical set of seven pieces with unusual titles such as “A Stuffed Lion Called Jonathan,” “The Toy Donkey.” Mild harmonies though freely dissonant, clever. M-D. Jacques Ibert (1890–1962) France Ibert wrote with clarity and Gallic wit. Drama played a major role in all his works, inspired no doubt by his early service as piano accompanist for silent films and his love for the stage. He served as director of the French Academy in Rome from 1937 to 1960. Harmonie du Soir 1908 (Rouart 1908) 5 min. Subtitled Valse Boston. La Forêt 1913 (Ernest Régis).

Gay 1918; Leduc 1932; MMP) 3 min. Written during World War I; suggests the sound of wind howling through destroyed buildings. Roughed with oscillating octave progressions and touches of Impressionism. M-D. Pièce Romantique 1916 (A. Gay 1918; Leduc 1999) 8pp. 6 min. Composed for his piano teacher Marie Dhéré in late nineteenth-century chromaticism. Stands well as a concert piece and deserves to be better known. D. Scherzetto 1916 (A. Gay 1917; Leduc 1932) 4pp. 3 min. Originally published for harp, the piano score is identical and fits the instrument well. M-D. Matin sur l’Eau / Morning on the Water 1917 (A. Gay 1918; Leduc 1932) 7pp. 41/2 min. A beautiful, flowing melody supported by rolling arpeggios forms the basis for this, another work which was originally published for harp but also issued in an identical piano score. M-D. Ichiyanagi   529 Histoires ca.1912–22 (Leduc) 30pp. 22 min. Ten picturesque pieces composed over approximately a decade and compiled into a collection of Stories.

Transcribed from the original for orchestra. Requires a good octave technique. Int. to M-D.
