Abstract

English Horses is a neo-romantic work for piano and voice that combines aspects of lateromantic piano genres with the songs of Cole Porter and other turn-of-the-century songwriters. The harmonic aspects of the piece were inspired by the piano works of Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms while the formal and lyrical structures are more related to modern songwriting. The purpose of this combination of seemingly different genres is to blend the lines of classical piano idioms and modern songwriting composition in a way that can be relatable to a wider audience.
