Composer Matthew Quayle performs his compositions for solo piano for his debut recording.

Matthew Quayle's varied and eclectic compositional output ranges from concert orchestral works to cabaret songs. His music has been performed by the Albany Symphony Orchestra, Avalon String Quartet, Arditti String Quartet and eighth blackbird, among many other distinguished new music ensembles. Quayle is on the faculty at NYU Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. He is a graduate of Oberlin, the University of Cincinnati and the New York University Graduate School of Arts and Science. The 21 short pieces in this collection were written in a span of just over a decade, from 2002 to 2013. Together they amount to an homage to the joys of the piano miniature: the type of unassuming little piece that one can play through countless times, until it feels like an old friend.
