Verbs was composed for and premiered by Steinway Artist Keith Porter-Snell. Each prelude is titled by a verb and is an evocation of the energy of that verb.

Insistto take a resolute stand or course; persist; to take a firm stand about. Advanced level.

“These preludes hark back to earlier antecedents by Debussy, Rachmaninov, Chopin and J S Bach in their variety and appeal, creating an album rich in contrasts. Ryan’s composing style is eclectic, referencing jazz, contemporary classical, traditional classical, and American folk songs and hymns: Play, for example, is a vibrant anthem, redolent of sacred harp singing, while other Preludes are more contemplative, tender and wistful (Forgive, Bloom). Push is energetic and rumbling, suggesting bustling city life, Bounce scampers playfully around the keyboard with jazzy syncopations and colourful harmonies, and Tangle is redolent of some of Prokofiev’s more introspective ‘Visions Fugitives’. The album closes with the meditative Bless.” Frances Wilson, The Cross-Eyed Pianist
