This Day is a piano piece written for, and to celebrate, my wedding.
As a composer on an occasion such as this, it’s your chance to really pull one out of the bag. It is a challenge however to get a balance between serving the occasion, setting the perfect atmosphere, pleasing the ears of all those present, while still of course developing your craft.
This piece was specifically for the ‘entry of the bride’ at the ceremony, but it stands up wonderfully as a piece in its own right.
This is not the first time I have written for such an occasion, in 2006 my three movement wedding suite Promise was premiered in Taupo.
This Day was premiered on 14th February, 2009, at Caccia Birch House, Palmerston North, by Andrew Cochrane (www.andykeysmusic.com).
