Nicholas Phillips: #45miniatures
#45miniatures started as a sarcastic late-night post on Facebook. It quickly evolved into a major commissioning project representing the work of more than 50 composers. Each was invited to take anything related to our 45th President (tweets, speeches, etc.) as source material to create a miniature, or small collection of miniatures, for solo piano. The result is a large collection of pieces that serve as a musical response to Trump.
