389 Two Movements for Piano
(1) Piece for Piano with Strings. Moderate - Allegretto - Largo -
Allegro - Piu presto - Allegretto - Allegro - Adagio
(2) Allegro maestoso - Largo - Con moto
 D 1924 (CD 282)
 F For mvt 1, the earliest performance noted was in HC's London debut
at Aeolian Hall, 10 Dec 1923. Mvt 2 was never completed nor per-
formed.
 M Mvt 1 is complete in a sketchy pencil draft of 83m on 4p. Mvt 2 was
abandoned after a pencil draft had reached 46m on 2p.
 P As Piece pour piano avec cordes, mvt 1 was published on p4-7 of the
musical supplement to Le Counter Musical of 15 Feb 1924; R as Piece
for Piano with Strings in The Piano Music of Henry Cowell, vol. 2
(AMP, 1982), p49-52.
 C HC never settled on a satisfactory title. Mvt 1 appears variously as
(in addition to the tides above) Piece for Keyboard and Strings,
Morceau pour piano avec cordes. Two Movements (Piece pour piano
avec cordes) [on the MS], and others.
390 Paragraph [for piano] 1924
Moderate
 D 1924
 M (a) Ink fair copy, incomplete in 30m on 2p
(b) Pencil draft complete in 54m on 2p
 C After getting six of his participular Ings into print (nos. 353/1-6), HC
seems to have turned his mind to paragraphing: during 1924-25 he
composed some dozen pieces with Paragraph in the tide. First came
this and the following, no. 391. The last may have been Addenda
no. 960, unless it was written for Carl Ruggles's 48th birthday in 1924
instead of for his 49th.
391 Paragraph [for piano]
Andante
 D 1924 (CD 283). CD 283 may possibly belong to the preceding Para-
graph, but the location of this unfinished draft on the 2p following
CD 281 (no. 399) suggests it as CD 283.
 M Incomplete pencil sketch of 44m, with arpeggiated triplets in the left
hand against practically nothing for the right hand, on 2p
