Je répondrais (I would answer…), solo piano by Malcolm Forsyth 1997 Dur 7 min.
Commissioned by Stéphane Lemelin, premiered by him November 21, 1997, Convocation Hall, University of Alberta, Edmonton
In the spirit of a response to three great composers, Forsyth has written these pieces either with a real title by that
composer, the nickname of a work or, in the case of the second, witha cryptic reference to the composer himself.
à Purcell: Fantazia upon One Note
à Schumann: Thumb-piano
