Cool Cat Piano Goodies Whats that? To begin with, watch as Ulrich Kallmeyer explores various pop idioms in cool pieces conceived for easy to medium difficulty and for contrasting harmonies and rhythms. Such a claim still doesnt do justice to the Goodies, however, since references to the classical tradition shimmer through these pieces. Behind Second Loss is Schumanns Erster Verlust, and the New Solo for Mr. Byrd reaches much farther yet into music history. Other works were influenced by Baroque and Classical forms such as prelude, chorale and rondo. The Goodies leap nimbly through eras and styles and have something to offer both beginning and proficient pianists.
