From the Publisher

Commissioned by, and dedicated to "The Glens", Sonatina is in three movements and was written over the course of a few days in December, here on the island of Mallorca where I live. Trying to start a piece is always the most difficult thing and sometimes I have to search for inspiration - on this occasion a beautiful walk on our local beach with my partner and our three small dogs, started me off with the first movement, "Running with Dogs"; not that I do a lot of running these days, but you get the drift! In the summer months the beach is crowded, but during winter it is deserted save for a few locals, also with dogs. It is a heavenly spot, and in the fading golden sun of a December day, even more so. The slow movement, "Poetic, somewhat sad", has a rather nostalgic feel to it. Written in the form of a simple song, its gentle lyricism lends it an air of days gone by, a quiet lamenting song of memories and of thoughtfulness. To end with "Short impromptu dance" is just that! (Paul Carr)
The first performance was given by Ian Glen and Glen Capra ["The Glens"] at the Brighton Festival in the church of St. Michael and All Angels on 17th May 2008

Performance duration (approx): 7'00
