Piano Thoughts, Vol. 4 Complete and Scheduled for Premiere!

Late in 2016, Pianist Elaina Burns approached me after encountering my work for piano that I wrote for Nick Phillips. The idea of a collaboration sprang up, and low and behold, a new commission was born. I was incredibly excited to write this work for Elaina, who also plans to record the piece on a forthcoming album. 

The premiere is set for September 17th in Pearl River, NY. More info on that here.

Recording of Piano Thoughts, Vol. 3 Released!

Nicholas Phillips' recording of my Piano Thoughts, Vol. 3 was released today! It can be streamed on Spotify, and is available for purchase via iTunes and Amazon.

Nick commissioned me for this work last year, and premiered it in San Francisco in late April of this year. It's been a pleasure working with him!

Gramophone Review for Piano Thoughts, Vol. 2

Gramophone released a great review of Paul Barnes' new album! Here is what they had to say about my Piano Thoughts, Vol. 2:

"Lucas Floyd’s Piano Thoughts, Vol 2, written last year, consists of five delicately placed piano miniatures, whose understated quality belies an assured technique and confident voice. It would be interesting to hear what he might do with more extended structures."
