Modern Dances For The Creative Pianist by Wynn Anne Rossi - Digital
Modern Dances For The Creative Pianist
In Four Movements
For Solo Piano
By Wynn-Anne Rossi
Modern Dances for Creative Pianists was commissioned specially for the 2021 Festival for Creative Pianists participants. In this four movement work, Wynn-Anne Rossi models creativity by engaging in the same learning activity that participants were asked to complete for a workshop. This work is a joyous celebration of music-making and movement, with dance steps included at the beginning of each movement. Each movement has a distinctive style and feel, including: Ten Finger Dance, Melodic Line Dance, Harmonic Circle Dance, and Rhythmic Rock Dance.
Collaborate with a fellow pianist or dancer and share your video with us! This work is a wonderful way for intermediate pianists to internalize the role of movement in the creation of music and to break the wall between performer and audience.
