Misc. Comments

It is his most ambitious work for solo piano. The pieces are important because of the dedication each piece bears to several of his students and colleagues. Some of the works from this suite are written as a tribute (hommage) to other composers' style of writing for the piano. Although some of the works are simple, most require advanced pianism.
