Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Piano
Programme Note:
Remember was written for Patrick Armstrong with the intent that he would play it at his 4th-year piano recital. Unfortunately for that plan, it ended up 5 movements and 25 minutes — a bit long for the original purpose! The five movements are in the order fast – slow – fast – slow – fast. The opening is similar to a Chopin prelude. The two slow movements are lyrical and atmospheric. The 3rd and 5th movements use related material in different ways. Movement 3 is a scherzo with traditional repeats, some exact and some varied. Movement 5 develops that material in something similar to a sonata form.Remember was premiered on Nov. 5, 2017, by Patrick Armstrong, at the Salle Huguette Labelle (Tabaret), University of Ottawa as part of the concert “Music of John Gordon Armstrong”.
