Programme Note

In this work I draw on the spaciousness and the counterpoint dialogue between voices in Lilburn’s seventh piano piece. Dissonant fragments of his juxtaposed chords, shrill woodwind voices and a ‘hurdy-gurdy’ figure pervade the new work. What would he think of my birthday offering? I’m not sure!
