Juhani Nuorvala: The Five Chords That Shook My World for piano


This piano piece is a fantasy meditation on the Train/Spaceship chords in the opera "Einstein on the Beach" by Philip Glass. There is something strange in the repeating five-chord progression (Fm – Db – A – B7 – E) "because it never fails to lift the audience to its feet". Nuorvala’s piece was written in 2020 for pianist Nicolas Horvath’s Hommage à Glass project. Duration 6’30.
