These are interesting pieces. It strikes me that your teacher had an unusually acute harmonic sense. The music is always clearly tonal, but nonetheless the actual tonality often floats in a freely varying manner. It's not easy to be sure from just listening, but it seems to me that from a compositional perspective he frequently uses cells (rhythmic and melodic) to maintain structure and coherence. Your playing was sensitive and clear; thanks for posting these pieces which are worthy of wider public attention.

Hi Andrew,
thank you very much for your interesting and kind comment and for your interest and praise of Franz´ music.
I´m so glad, that some people are interested in the works of Franz-Josef Streuff and I would be highly delighted, if the number of those would increase!
Yes, Franz´ had a very good and subtle feeling for the harmonic progessions and structures. I like your idea of the "cells" and I think, they describe aptly the structure of Franz´ thinking in composing music, but of course, there is also a lot of development and "motivic and thematic work". Their are some audacious and interesting modulations and harmonic progressions within these little nice works. I will record more of the work of Franz-Josef Streuff in future by and by.
