It's always dangerous to take a break - part two 

Inspired by a niece of mine, Frauke, who has a very interesting blog about literature (in Dutch), I feel a little obliged to take up my Tuesday Thing again. The first thing I did was rework the little Fughetta from last February, which is to be found in the previous blog entry (it looks the same, but the files have been updated with the new piece).

New Tuesday Thing: Exploring fourths 

After a week lying sick in my bed, here is a little piano piece, build with chords and sequences of perfect and augmented fourths. Stefaan mentioned that he had trouble opening the embedded soundfile in the PDF-file of the score, so therefor I include the MP3-file of the piece as well.

More chords in thirds: a little Étude for piano 

My first piece for the new year is a little étude in broken chords. There are all the chords with three notes (diminished, minor, major and augmented triads) and some with four notes (seventh chords).

My New Year gift for all music lovers. Enjoy!

It is called "Op weg", this is Dutch for "On the Road"
