Programme Note:
Past Winters Solstice was written for the Royal Academy of Music Junior Academy and is intended for players of high school level or higher. The work is through composed with a form very much like an arch. The opening is serene; the piano plays a unison line. Shortly thereafter the cello enters followed by the violin. The texture develops to a wild crescendo and then subsides at the end. Perhaps this could be analogous to one last storm after the winter solstice and the arrival of spring. The Piano should use the sustain pedal as needed. Where indicated Violin and cello require plastic mutes.
