Emotions expressed through the Piano
The Piano Poem is a type of instrumental music played on a solo piano. This form has been created by Arashk Azizi and centers around a main theme and its various interpretations. The composer should strive to create an improvisational feel in the piece, but it should not be mistaken for a mere improvisation on a single theme. Rather, it should convey the composer's emotional expression.
The Piano Poem shares similarities with the Nocturne in form, but it has a narrative quality that makes its length inherently longer. Every Piano Poem is based on a story or some form of narrative, yet it can still be enjoyed without prior knowledge of the story. Like other program music, it is a complete form in its own right.
As a form, the Piano Poem falls between the Nocturne and the Impromptu. It has the technicality and emotional composition of a Nocturne, while also embracing the freer form of an Impromptu.
Typically, the Piano Poem features a homophonic texture, although other textures may be used for expressive purposes. The main melody is usually straightforward but memorable and undergoes variations alongside the harmony.
In the hands of a skilled composer, the Piano Poem is a powerful expressive tool that can greatly move its audience.
