I almost forgot about this one! The tenth in Burgmuller's set of 25 etudes for piano - I forgot I had recorded this one along with the previous nine and just came across it. This etude (exercise) is intended to provide technique for repeated notes played by independant fingers. It's short and sweet.By Jeremiah Jones
 
The next in the Clementi Sonatina set that I've been working on. This was actually recorded many months ago, but I haven't had time to publish it :-) This performance did not turn out great. I would label it as "sloppy" and "rushed" in many parts. However, I am just as human and prone to fallibility as the next pianist (perhaps more so!)... I hope …
 
Apparently this is my first release of a Brahms piece on my website! I did not realize I was missing such an important composer in the classical reportory until now... This piece is a beautiful Intermezzo by Brahms - one that was introduced to me by a colleague at Washington University in St. Louis. The piece has a wonderful way of playing with dis…

Continuing the set of Burgmuller's Op. 100 - this recording is of No. 7, titled "By the limpid stream." I had to look up the meaning of "limpid," which means clear, or transparent. Hearing the recording after the fact, I think I would have taken it a touch slower and muted the inner notes more. I hope you enjoy the recording.…
 
Woodland Sketches Op. 51, No. 1 (To a Wild Rose) composed by Edward MacDowell performed by Jeremiah Jones. This is a very well-known melody by the American composer, Edward MacDowell.

Poco Allegretto composed by Cesar Franck performed by Jeremiah Jones. Here is a short piece by Cesar Franck that I came across in one of my sheet music sets. I love the melody and the way that Franck uses hanging tones to harmonize. This recording is dedicated to a young listener, Sayuri, from Brazil. I hope that she will enjoy listening to this re…
 
My first recording of a work by Burgmuller. I discovered this work in Alfred's "Classical Music for the Church Service: Volume 2."

I hope that you enjoy it!…

I hope that my interpretation and recording will not be a disappointment to those who have patiently waited. Clair de Lune, translated as "moonlight" is one of Debussy's mo…
 
This is a recording of the third movement/section of Schumann's masterpiece, Fantasy in C. This movement is one of my all-time favorite works in the piano literature. Edited by his wife, Clara, this work was originally dedicated to Franz Liszt, although later editions did not include the dedication. I view this as a highly passionate and energetic …
 
The Ecossaise is a Scottish dance, usually in 2/4 time. It is known for the energetic rhythm and wide-ranging dynamics. This particular Ecossaise was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1823. This happens to be my first recording on my newly-acquired grand piano! I can't believe how much better the sound quality is on this piano as compared to my p…
 
Bach's Invention No. 1 in C Major is one of his most well-known works, as it typically makes it into the repertory of most piano students. As a result, I decided I had better make a recording of it. I hope you enjoy my sight-reading recording of Bach's Invention No. 1 in C Major! This recording was made at my home on my studio upright.…
 
I have had several people request that I record some Debussy preludes so here is the first! This prelude is one of Debussy's best-known works. It was composed just over 100 years ago and appeared in Debussy's first book of preludes. This piece is composed after the legend of the city of Ys (pronounced "ees") - which was engulfed in the sea but was …
 
This is my first recording of a work by Muzio Clementi. I thank one of the visitors to my Facebook page for suggestion a recording by Clementi! Clementi wrote many, many Sonatas (and Sonatinas) for the piano and was considered the first great composer for the piano (or pianoforte). His works were inspirational to many great musicians and composers …
 
This is the first variation on the Aria from Bach's famous Goldberg Variations. This set of variations on a simple Aria is one of the greatest keyboard works available. Bach demonstrates his unique capability to compose so many different styles of music within the constraints of counterpoint as well as the theme upon which the variations are compos…
 
Prelude in B-flat Minor Arranged in Major composed by Johann Sebastian Bach performed by Jeremiah Jones.

Prelude in B-flat Minor BWV 867 - The Well-Tempered Clavier, Vol 1 composed by Johann Sebastian Bach performed by Jeremiah Jones. This is one of those preludes that is great for those times when words just cannot express the longings of the heart.

This is one of those preludes that is great for those times when words just cannot express the longings of the heart. To me, this prelude is like a lamentation or a mourning - something heartfelt and sincere. It is also in a fairly uncommon key - that of B flat minor. I hope that you enjoy my recording of this work.…
 
This work is the sixth piece from Liszt's "Harmonies poetiques et religieuses" (Poetic and Religious Harmonies). This work has some very beautiful harmonies and chord progressions. The majority of this work is in the key of A-flat, which is a very loving and dreamlike key for Liszt. He throws in a few changes to the important key of E-major, which,…
 
This is the third and final movement to Mozart's Sonata in F Major (K 300k). This has been a fun sonata to record and got me hooked on learning a few other Mozart sonatas that I will hopefully be recording and releasing in the coming months. I hope you enjoy my recording of Mozart's Sontat in F, "Allegro" (3rd Movement).…
