Piano players always need to have something special under their fingers that sounds difficult but really isn’t. My Boogieman of the Opera is perfect for this purpose. The framework, by J.S. Bach, is played with solid boogie bass for comic effect. The work was conceived and realized while we were living in Toronto, Canada 1986-87. I played its premier at the Prince Hotel where I was under contract at the time. It’s a real “crowd- pleaser”. Since, it has become my trademark piece; for, as I have been employed over many summers in upstate New York as a pianist, it has become a favorite of resort owners and their patrons. The score on the website was neatly and professionally written out by the prominent Hollywood music copyist Arthur Richards who copied much of the movie blockbuster music of John Williams. I am very appreciative of his hard work.
