Lucifer's Banjo and other pieces
Forces or Category: Piano solo
This volume is an eclectic mix of short works composed over a number of years. Butler's idiomatic writing for the piano is instantly appealing and captures a wide variety of moods. His musical language is at times playful, humorous, and parodic, with characterful melodic gestures and jaunty rhythms; at others it is serene and lyrical. This is a collection for those seeking new, interesting contemporary repertoire that is rewarding and hugely enjoyable to play.
