Programme Note:
3. The Gentle Sea
It opens with a section representing large, gentle waves in the middle of a big sea. Then there is an agitated transition, which leads to the second section. One can imagine an underwater landscape with a diver swimming among coral reefs and beautifully-coloured fish. The melody is chromatic with pretty harmonies. It leads to a more animated theme, but has the same rhythm as before. Then it slows down and leads back to the opening melody. The themes are repeated in different keys and the journey goes on to an impressive ending.

4. My Cat, Portia
Ir opens with many fun antics of the cat, including scratching her scratch pad and stretching. Then comes the Cat's Lullaby. The opening is repeated with "purring" added by the cello. The lullaby comes back and leads to a Coda ending with lots of slides and a large, descending leap on the piano.
