This commission is for a pianist to play to his daughter. I’m told Alexa is creative and dreamy, and I’m hoping I’ve caught her spirit in this piece. The second page is unusual in that it utilises four staves. Composers such as Debussy and Rachmaninov have used this method of scoring when the texture is opaque and the hands are flitting from one clef to the other. The video should make things clear if in doubt!

  1. Thank you for this lovely dedication to my daughter, it’s very fitting and I’ll have fun learning it and playing it to her, ad nauseum, over the coming years.

  2. So pleased you like it, Peter, it’s one of my own favourites so far!
