Programme Note:
Spirit Room for piano and orchestra is a work inspired by a dream in which the golden light emanating from beneath a closed door seemed to beckon the dreamer to open it and release the energetic spirit within. This image was the starting-off point for the musical work which develops its own organic structure free from a sense of programmatic narrative. The first movement is longer and explores a slowly transforming lyrical theme, while the shorter scherzo-like second movement alternates, at a fast tempo, between a lively tune and subsequent variations of itself. Spirit Room was premièred by pianist James Parker with Symphony Nova Scotia in January 2000.
