The pianoworks ‘Canale Grande’ and Palazzo Bernardo were composed and performed in September 1994, half a year after Schipper’s stay in Venice.

 

The influence of Byzantine music, the movement of water beside a suggestion of three dimensionality are characteristic of these pianoworks.

 

The works were recorded live, on a Yamaha 235 cm Grand Piano in the Marnix Concert hall, Utrecht, the Netherlands.
