About the work

The piece is parked ‘contemplating but expressive. The first section is marked cantabile, the second ‘dark and distant, but relentless’, and the third ‘very distant’.

First Performance: June 1996, Spectrum Launch, Royal College of Music

Technical notes

The opening is slow moving. This is followed by a passage with fast notes alternating between the hands, before a concluding section in shifting triplet chords.
