Quest 8: May the Four-Hand Piano Be with You

Composer Quest 8 Piano Four Hands

UPDATE: The quest is finished. Come hear the results at our Star Wars Day concert on May 4th (6pm, Underground Music Cafe).

In honor of Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you), our eighth Composer Quest quest will involve the number four. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a piano piece for four hands (two pianists at one piano). You’re also encouraged to work the number four into your piece in other ways, like the harmony, rhythm, or form. The best pieces will be performed by Susan Hsu and Franco Holder here in Minnesota on May 4th (6pm, Underground Music Cafe).

Take a listen to this announcement episode with Susan, Franco, and Underground Music Cafe’s owner Tim Cheesebrow to get inspired:

When you finish your piece, send me a PDF and mp3 or MIDI file (charlie@composerquest.com) on or before April 23rd. Please note that Minnesota composers will be given priority for the performance, but all submissions will be looked at and considered.

Good luck, and may the force be with you!
