Description

Max Prick van Wely / Albert Brussee

IMPROVISATIE OVER PERUAANSE VOLKSMELODIEËN
for piano

In the early sixties of the 20th century, Max Prick van Wely composed three improvisations on Peruvian folk tunes for the left hand for the famous pianist Cor de Groot, who had problems with his right hand at the time. De Groot never performed them, so eventually the music was given to me, when I was a pupil at the gymnasium in Apeldoorn with Prick van Wely as a teacher of School Music. Many years later, when we had entered into a partnership, I rewrote the last two folk music arrangements for piano two-handed and forged them together (A-B-A form).
In 1986, the composition was published by Broekmans & Van Poppel under both our names. No longer available, in 2021 I carefully retouched the score, simplified it somewhat and republished the work with the publisher’s permission.

Style: romantic impressionism; colourful harmonies (early Villa Lobos).

Difficulty: Grade VII (on a scale to maximally grade XII).

In the early 1960s Max Prick van Wely composed Three improvisations on Peruvian folk music for the left hand alone for the famous Dutch pianist Cor de Groot.  Many years later, when we had entered into partnership, I rewrote the last two folk-music arrangements for piano two-handed and combined these. In 1986 this composition was published by Broekmans & Van Poppel. Not available anymore, this is a slightly revised republication.
