Album Notes
Franz Liszt is one of history's most influential pianists, composers, and music teachers. I fell in love with his work in college, after a roommate of mine kept playing his stuff over and over.

Inspired by Liszt and others, I decided to try my hand at writing classical music...

In writing the compositions for the CD "Fantasy Of 1811 (Resampled)" (1811 is the year Franz was born), I fantasized I was a great 19th century composer, just like Liszt. I studied some of the same texts (Gradus Ad Parnassum for one), forms (fugue, canon, toccata/fugue, etude, sarabande) and composition rules that he did. This CD contains a toccata, a toccata/fugue in the Bach form, 3 etudes, 2 "free" canons, a rhapsody, a passacaglia, and a few other pieces. All are piano pieces "played" electronically (I bought software and stuck the little notes into the score on the computer screen!).

Reviews of my music have likened it to the old-world master Hayden, who wrote accessable, popular "classical" music. He was kind of a jack-of-all trades, and his music was very well received by the masses (although perhaps not by the critics of the day).

You've heard what Bach, Mozart, etc. have to offer. Take a chance on a modern classical composer (me). Try something new and buy my CD. You won't be sorry! Thanks :) Doug.

NEW! This CD contains all the compositions (some have VERY minor changes) of the original "Fantasy Of 1811", only they have been re-sampled/re-recorded using the very realistic sounds of a Bösendorfer Imperial 290 Grand Piano!

This is delightful. I love classical piano and would not purchase contempory music even though I like to hear it at the symphony. But, this is light and bright.
