Benshoof Timeless for Piccolo and Piano

Benshoof Timeless for Piccolo and Piano

Composer-Ken Benshoof


Scattered throughout the piece are elements of George Gershwin’s Embraceable You. They appear sometimes as fragments and at other times as harmonic progressions.  The storyline structure of the piece is very simple; it is a romance with a little dancing in the middle.

The first and last sections feel delicate, tender, and suspended in time.  Other areas are more sensual and lyrical.  The composer recommends a freely expressive and rhapsodic style of performance.

Ken Benshoof

Ken Benshoof, a composer and pianist, was born in 1933 on a farm in Nebraska. He completed his high school education in Fairbanks, Alaska. He pursued studies at Pacific Lutheran University and the Spokane Conservatory before serving in the U.S. Army for two years. He obtained a bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington, a master’s degree from San Francisco State University, and further studied at the Guildhall School of Music in London as a Fulbright Scholar.

Benshoof’s most influential teachers included Volfgangs Darzins, John Verrall, Roger Nixon, George Frederick McKay, and Afred Neiman.

His primary focus is composing chamber music, and he has received commissions from a diverse range of sources. Notably, he has created eight works for the Kronos String Quartet.
