Album For The Young

Matthew Lee Knowles
[2000]

I wrote this collection of solo piano pieces aged around fourteen and I have thought of them quite regularly over the past twelve years. I decided to write them up from the original handwritten scores in February 2012 and completed this by the end of April. I have been careful not to revise or reinvent; naturally, I couldn't write these pieces now and there are far too many things I'd like to change, but I think it's important to be able to see these pieces untouched. I put these online for anyone interested in playing them, or out of curiosity, perhaps knowing the sort of music composition I'm involved in these days.

I just told a little lie, I did change something in these pieces - the titles: I got rid of them as they were embarrassingly clichéd, generic schoolboy attempts [just like the music!] - I will recreate them here with reference, just for fun:

I - A Summer's Day
II - The Water-Lily
III - untitled
IV - untitled
V - Looking through the window of the toy-shop
VI - Broken Daydream
VII - untitled
VIII - Climbing a Tree
IX - Shadows in the Night
X - Variations on a Scottish Theme*

[the theme here is original, after playing to my piano teacher, he mentioned it sounded a bit Scottish and voilà - a title was born]
