Jean Hasse - Pocket Pieces (Books I, II and III)

The Pocket Pieces are in print and available for purchase.
Arranged into three books (61 pieces total) they are intended for pianists of all ages.
Their various styles come from a mixture of traditions such as classical, jazz, atonal, free improvisations and beyond. There is variety and focus, with each short and concentrated piece having its own ‘personality’. Most of the music was composed at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire during two residencies at the artists' retreat.
