welcome / by Nathan Carterette

this is going to be a blog for casual thoughts, and also full-length essays that i write for music i play. those essays are sometimes used as program notes or liner notes or whatnot, so they are more in depth.

my interests are the piano repertoire from the virginal Elizabethan days to the avant garde music of today; as a hobby i read, just to name a few at random: James, Kazantzakis, Faulkner, Mishima, Wodehouse, Tolstoy, Nabokov, and lots of ancient epics such as Nibelungenlied, Homer, Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the like. i'll post thoughts about those from time to time.
