Schoolkids Records (Retail & Label)

The contents of this album present the piano pieces in the music book "For all Ages", published by Edition Wilhelm Hansen. "I am totally self-taught and do not compose according to rules. I am only using my ears. Little ideas come to me constantly and if I am lucky to have pencil and music paper at hand, I just write it down. After that I turn to all the other part of the work. Many of the pieces in this collection are obviously simple. There is a reason for that: I hardly can play the piano. But that doesn't prevent me from sitting sit at a keyboard and figure out what is practically possible with the two hands. I thought to myself: If I can write something that I myself, although with a lot of trouble, can play-it might be not too bad for the student who is slightly experienced. Another thing: In a way it is just as difficult to write something simple as to write something complicated. You have to decide every tone rather carefully. Simplicity is a demanding challenge."
