Three Chinese Pieces
By Abram Chasins
Alfred Masterwork Edition
American composer Abram Chasins became well known for his solo piano suite Three Chinese Pieces (1926). Each movement sounds out the mood implied by its title: sorrow ("A Shanghai Tragedy"), romance ("Flirtation in a Chinese Garden"), and breathtaking frenzy ("Rush Hour in Hong Kong"). Tempos and technical demands fluctuate from Lento through Presto agitato. Titles: A Shanghai Tragedy * Flirtation in a Chinese Garden (for the White Keys Only) * Rush Hour in Hong Kong.
