March 19 – Three Preludes by Robert Muczynski

Performed by Jennifer Parker-Harley
Recorded by Jeff Francis

Born on this day in 1929, Robert Muczynski was an American composer and pianist. His relatively small compositional outlook consists primarily of chamber works and piano pieces, although his compositions for flute are numerous and have become part of the standard repertoire for the instrument. The Preludes exhibit his sense of rhythmic vitality and the influence of jazz on his style.
