George Benjamin Piano Figures: Ten short pieces for solo piano
Piano Figures was conceived for the hands of young pianists. Most of the movements are not technically challenging, though a few do require a degree of virtuosity. At all times, however, my desire was to state ideas and capture moods in the most direct and economic way possible. George Benjamin

'… one of the most formidable composers of his generation…'
'… one of the greatest musicians of our time…'
'… one bows down before such a great musician…'
