La Nina

for piano

Year:  1998

Year:  1998


La Nina was written as a companion piece to El Nino, and was written during the summer of 1998/99 when the La Nina weather pattern affected New Zealand. While the main impetus of the work centres around a musical argument, there is also a loose correlation between the musical material, and the intense, oppressive and consistent heat of the La Nina weather patterns as it affected the east coast of the South Island. I would like to thank Judith Clark (whose request for a small piano work that might be suitable for her piano students at the School of Music, University of Canterbury initiated El Nino) for her unwavering support of New Zealand Music.
