12 Variations on HARRY

John BloodGZ 148
Piano | Duration: 13½ minutes

These light hearted character pieces are a set of 12 variations all based on the five letters of the name HARRY – with a slight phonetic cheat for the ‘Y’! Through letters and emails, a friendship between Harry Presburg (who lives in Florida) and the composer and his partner has flourished for many years and these pieces are by way of a thank you for all the gentle kindness shown by Harry, a keen pianist.

Giles Swayne’s pieces are not only witty and amusing – they teach aspiring musicians to characterise. The player is invited to play roles and to identify with people, objects and situations.
A publication seems long overdue.”
