Between the Fingers
Peter Graham (born 1952)
Peter Graham’s real name is Jaroslav Št’astný-Pokorný but he composes music under the name Peter Graham. His work ranges from music teaching and theatre work to Czech TV and Radio.
He is a CONTEMPORARY composer who says that his music ‘grows as does timber in a forest’
‘I am what I do,’ he says.
Between the Fingers is a dreamy piece in a CONTEMPORARY style. The notation looks complicated but showing the rhythm crossing the staves is quite useful to show how the melody transfers from the right hand to the left and back again.
