Prelude (1999)

Sarah Kirkland Snider
3 min 30 sec

I began this piece while messing around at the piano with singer-songwriter Liz Phair’s early song “Canary.” Phair’s song opens with a chain of piano octaves that mesmerized me and inspired the opening bars. The rest of the piece owes more to Debussy, whose music was my first great love as a pianist.
