Fragmen - Jaya Suprana

Hi Guys, my latest video post is up

He is considered to be one of the most prominent indonesian composer, famous for his integration of western classical music with traditional oriental feel of java. One can indulge in gamelan-like sound produced by the piano that surprises many. The entry is like a chant played by suling or traditional javanese flute.

Fragment - Jaya Suprana
This gentle and calm melody contrasted by the entry of the solo gong that is set at a faster tempo. The upward moving broken chords are somewhat a reminiscent of the interlocking feature of the gamelan ensemble.

The most challenging part of performing this piece lies on consistency of the left hand accompaniment. Especially when it gets a bit virtuosic towards the end of the piece. At the same time, upon successful to overcome this challenge, one may indulge in a readily accessible Javanese music.
