identifying a piece
on: April 18, 2004, 05:25:09 AM
Hi,
I'm trying to figure out the name of a piece. However, it won't be easy as i don't have such a good memory of it. All i know is that it sounds like 20th century music, it has a form of main theme consisting of a sequence of heavy-sounding chords, ending with glissandi in the right hand (repeated a couple of times). I remember hearing it in a recent documentary about Lang Lang. In any case, I'm sure this description is not sufficient but i'm open to suggestions.

hmmm...20th century.....sequence of heavy chords....glissando at the end....hmmmm...

Could it possibly be Prokofiev's Toccata Op.11?

well maybe it's an accurate assesment if you haven't seen that documentary, but i guess it may not be so widely known. i made a midi of the piece, which is rather awful and in the wrong key considering i didnt hear this piece for years, but i think it went something like this.

That sounds to me like a part of Debussy's prelude from his Pour le Piano. See if this is it. https://www.classicalarchives.com/m/013/debplp01.mid
