Three Lyrical Pieces Op.17 image
1. Evening Twilight: Andante tranquillo
2. Cavatina: Andante tranquillo
3. Waltz: Allegretto grazioso
These three pieces were composed in 2010. "Cavatina" was the first to be written and was composed in response to a commission to write a short piece for the Lancaster and the Lakes 2010 Piano Competition. Having felt that this work was too brief to stand on its own, I added the other two movements shortly afterwards. "Evening Twilight" is named after a watercolour by the artist George Barret Junior (1767-1842) and aims to transfer his poetic qualities into sound. The straightforward language of the "Cavatina" recalls the sound world of my earlier Sonatinas. The "Waltz" is faster in tempo than the preceding two movements and is generally straightforward despite occasional harmonic twists and several unexpected forays into four time. The Three Lyrical Pieces are dedicated to the composer Robin Field and his wife Jean. They were first performed at the University of Cumbria on 26th March 2010 with the composer at the piano.
