Composer's Notes  
90+ for piano is built around ninety short, accented notes played in a slow regular beat. Against these the context changes character continually. It was composed in March of 1994 to celebrate the ninetieth birthday of my dear and much admired friend, Goffredo Petrassi, Italy’s leading composer of his generation. Its first performance was given by Giuseppe Scotese on June 11, 1994, at the Pontino Music Festival dedicated to Petrassi’s birthday.
