for solo piano
Dreaming was written for and performed by Naoko Hashimoto. It was premiered at the Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall on June 12, 2004.
Howard Aibel, New York Concert Review, Winter 2005:
“The next piece is a world premire called Dreaming by
Jason Taylor. The two movements were titled First
Movement and Second Movement; a bit bland. The
writing was very vocal and had lovely melodies while
sounding impressionistic- a bit like early Ned Rorem.
That is to say French, in fact. The second movement
was in Toccata style with lots of ostinati. In these
two pieces, Hashimoto showed that she has good fingers
and an affinity for these works.”
