For the 60th anniversary of the death of Anton Webern, Ms. Mercer asked professional and student composers from the San Francisco Community Music Center (http://www.sfcmc.org) to write short pieces using the tone row Webern used in his composition, Kinderstück. These pieces appear on Ms. Mercer’s just released CD, Anton von Webern Complete Piano Music and works inspired by them on Centaur Records.
