March (Stuart Thyne)

March (Stuart Thyne)

This is a short march for piano solo that my piano teacher Stuart Thyne wrote for me when I was about 12. I hear the influence of Shostakovich in it.

I made the recording as an adult.

Here is Stuart’s manuscript. The fingerings are part of the manuscript. To appreciate fully Stuart’s distinctive hand, if you are viewing this on a wide enough screen, then adjust the zoom if necessary until the width of the page on your screen is 9 inches (229 mm), the physical width of the manuscript paper.
