November in the Phantom Recital Hall
And appropriate for the season, one piece is Bolcom's "The Poltergeist."
I love this playful piece, with sinister hints; it's a good representation of the concept it's named after. It's one of Bolcom's three "Ghost Rags", written after the death of his father and in his studio overlooking a cemetery.
And speaking of cemeteries, we have to pass one on the way home....
