"The six pieces which make up this set were composed over a number of years and explore a range of styles.
Characteristic Pieces is a collective title which has been used by many composers, especially of the Romantic period, for a group of shorter piano compositions which are held together by a common factor. In this instance, however, the term 'characteristic' has been applied somewhat loosely and refers to the diversity of the distinct styles within the set.
The chosen styles include the pastiche Rococo Plus, Ragtime and Blues and the somewhat more contemporary The Little Dancer." Mike Cornick
