Programme Note

In 10 Miniatures, I wanted to explore the idea of transforming material in unusual ways. Each miniature is related to its predecessor. I have taken an idea or series of ideas, whether it is a chord, melodic fragment or rhythmic cell, and used it to form the starting point for the next movement. Each movement has its own title, ranging from Delicate and Fleeting to Bold and Ceremonial and Urgent and Rhythmical.

Performance note:
The miniatures may either be separated by pauses of varying lengths or played attacca at
the discretion of the performer.
