Barcarolle, composed by Rick Robertson, is a late intermediate level solo in a neo-Romantic lyrical style that evokes the music of Mendelssohn, in his Venetian Gondola Songs. It is very effective in performance, and makes an excellent repertoire choice for a developing pianist for recital or festival.
Chalumeau, composed by Rick Robertson is a late-intermediate level solo in a neo-Romantic lyrical style. It is inspired by the “chalumeau” register of the clarinet, with its low, rich tones (named after a reed instrument that preceded the clarinet). The melody lies close to the middle of the keyboard, and the accompaniment moves above and below it, giving an opportunity to work on voicing and balance.
