Seated in the Rain
(No. 3 from Soft Summer Airs)
Premiere—2011, by Mimi Tung, St. Paul, Minn.
Soft Summer Airs brings together five small pieces—each three pages at most—on summery themes. Seated in the Rain was composed in the wake of a tragic event many years ago. While not virtuosic, this sweetly sad song for piano solo has some subtle difficulties, making it appropriate for a mature performer.
