Programme Note:
This composition for piano, four hands draws inspiration and movement titles from a few isolated events from 2009, a year of personal growth and change.

i. trajectoires dans l'esprit de la chevalerie – a play on words based on a section of Dai Sijie’s novel Mr. Muo’s Travelling Couch. The opening draws inspiration from Debussy’s prelude La Terrasse des Audiences au Clair de Lune, using a cascading sixteenth-note pattern as a point of departure for the onslaught of trajectories which influence the speed and chordal language of the movement.

ii. LOST – this movement emulates a story about an organist who achieved an elevated level of consciousness by accidentally playing a certain chord. The organist quickly lost the chord and spent the rest of his life trying to find it again. This movement wanders through a series of chords before moving on to the final movement.

iii. Moorestown – a song from Sun Kil Moon’s 2008 album April. The final progression pays homage to the song, and a nice way to draw the composition to a conclusion.

This piece is written for and dedicated to Duo Sargasso in friendship and admiration.

Premiere Information:
30/06/2010 The Warehouse London Duo Sargasso
