Suite Francaise image
This suite was composed in the 1970s when Peter Thorogood came under the influence of the 'Groupe des Six', in particular Germaine Tailleferre. The work is dedicated to Robert Plowright, with whom Peter was studying at the time.

Aquarelle etude is a rippling watery piece which requires the pianist to make considerable leaps, crossing over with the left hand.
Serenade interrompue depicts a hesitant lover serenading a maiden who waits impatiently for him to finish playing and take her in his arms.
Chanson douce is a simple song of joy for soprano voice. A version, Angel Carol, with words by Neil Jenkins, is often performed at Christmas time.
Valse oubliee. Two young lovers return to life in the deserted ballroom where they once danced together.
Reverie en bleu is a dream-like piece in the 'blues' tradition.
Danse champetre is a joyful country dance.
