Programme note

Early in 2001, I was elated at the arrival of my first child, George. Observing him grow and develop in the last 6 months has rekindled the vague memories and nebulous feelings from my own early life, and has prompted me to wonder what memories, feelings, sights and smells etc he will remember in years to come. I am sure that these musings are not new and have occurred millions of times for many millennia, but I have still found them rather special. Perhaps the slower parts of the piece portray a nostalgic and retrospective perspective, and perhaps the faster gestures depict some animated conversations as heard by a newborn.
