Our Description

Composer's Notes

The work is a celebration of all that is lyrical and beautiful in music. It is dedicated to my mother, a person who much prefers a simple unadorned melody to the rhythmic excitement and complexity of jazz.

There should be a very strong sense of pulse, and whilst the tempo is unvariable until the last few bars, the music should always flow beautifully and never sound mechanical. Whether being played by flute or piano, the melody must "sing" gracefully at all times. The composer has not indicated any pedal marks. However, in order to achieve maximum legato, the pianist should use the pedal extensively throughout.

Difficulty guide: 5
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
