Contents: Treasures in the Attic, Rocking Horse, Seamstress's Mannequin, Rag Doll Ballet
Treasures in the Attic is a series of short programmatic works for solo piano. Beginning with an inquisitive sense of wonder, Stained Glass Window explores the discovery of a manhole, the entrance to the attic. The neglected Rocking Horse has been abandoned and left to reminisce about the past. The ominous Seamstress’s Mannequin explores fear and trepidation to be found in the dark, dusty attic. In Rag Doll Ballet, a neglected one-eyed doll dances alone next to the off-key music box.
