About

Programme note

I welcomed this commission to write a small piece for Stephen De Pledge, but baulked a little at the idea it that should be related to landscape, a concept that can easily fall into cliché. But then all physical places are in fact landscape, including the street where I have lived for the last 35 years (echoes of My Fair Lady), in the city I love.

This work creates a counterpoint between my own voice and its 'musical analogue', as played on the piano.
