A beloved student for several years and the son of a piano-teacher friend of mine went to Russia with his senior class, falling in love with everything Russian. He came home begging to play Rachmaninoff, but as was not quite advanced enough to learn any Rachmaninoff in the remaining three weeks of the semester, I offered to write him a somewhat more 'grateful' imitation, in 'Souvenir of a Russian Journey'. Thus began my custom of writing pieces for graduating high-school seniors. The 'senior pieces' all bear the names of those for whom they were written. Some are quite difficult and were not chosen by the students to be included on their senior recitals.

Some are quite difficult and were not chosen by the students to be included on their senior recitals. The 12 pieces in Book 2 were written between the years 2005 and 2009, all at 'Annacarla,' my retreat in northern New Mexico.

The pieces in Book 3 were written at Annacarla between 2009 and 2011, with the exception of "Ghosts," which was written in 2001, before I purchased Elizabeth Willink's house as a composing and teaching retreat. The piece is included here on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the attacks of September, 2011.

The nine pieces in Book 4 were written at Annacarla between 2011 and 2013. One of them, "Jean's Angels," was written not for a graduating high school senior, but in honor of a different kind of senior. Jean Villasenor, my neighbor at Annacarla, celebrated her 90th birthday there, so I wrote and performed this piece in her honor. I think she has at least two angels who watch over her at all times.

This set includes three works for my piano students who were also accomplished at other instruments, and voice, and who asked that their senior pieces feature those.
