About the work

The piece was written in January 2000, and was derived from a 1 bar piano riff. The mood of the piece developed as a kind of suppressed frustration: the kind where you are asked to keep your opinions to yourself – hence the title.

Technical notes

Piano part looks more difficult that it actually is. I have no objections to the piece being played on electronic keyboards – it would fit on a 5 octave keyboard
