This is a sheet music edition of SET for Piano by Eric Craven
for piano
Published by Divine Art Edition

In the search for new techniques and ‘expanding the boundaries’, Eric Craven created a new form of compositions which he called non-prescription. While the performer has a high degree of freedom around the set core, the music remains a new and distinct method, which can allow it to be approachable, often very beautiful and expressive.

In pieces ONE-ELEVEN, several parameters: pitch, rhythm and durationare given. In piece TWELVE, only one parameter, that of pitch, is offered.The performer is given comprehensive ownership of the omittedparameters.

“Craven’s tonality is literal and daringly untreated; triads shocking in their nakedness. ‘Two’ and ‘Four’ flirt with Romanticism (albeit filtered via Bill Evans); other pieces are sketched over memories of Baroque lines. But Craven’s aloof distance from his material makes these stylistic reference points fade, refocusing attention on a renewed pool of raw gestures. He cuts across stylistic allegiances, those same old same old allegiances that box so many composers in." - Phillip Clark, Gramophone
