Composer & Pianist
Peter Blauvelt's music is contemporary sounding, but in the classical tradition -- with occasional forays into the avantgarde, meditative and more traditional classical music. Individual pieces tend to be fairly well structured, but don't necessarily follow textbook rules, or those of serialism. Extended techniques are often used. Also, individual pieces are meant
to communicate multi-dimensional non-verbal messages, ranging from the humorous to the serious, the light-hearted to the intense. The compositions always take performers and audiences into consideration. The music also never denies its European roots that range from French to Russian music, in addition to American music.
