The Calendar

Every day of the year I wrote a composition for piano, regardless of the circumstances (e.g. a severe flu). The Calendar consists of 366 pieces.

Because the compositions were written on the day itself, this album can be seen as a diary. Can you hear that? And what did I write on your birthday? Or on your pupil's birthday?

2 do-it-yourself compositions per month have been added to the diary. I made the start, can you finish the 24 compositions?

Download the Preview (png). It is January 1st. If you can play this, you can play all the pieces from The Calendar.
