An Ode to May Movements 1 and 2 – Piano, 6.26 mins long.

This is my attempt to encapsulate several things. Firstly, it began as an ode to springtime, the month of May in particular as experienced in England as described by a friend and also another friend’s news of the beginning of a relationship. As it was being written, a tragedy interrupted and a first movement was added.

This is about triumph over tragedy and the sweetness of life moving from a wintery happenstance towards new triumphs in life – bittersweet and with romantic forms – aslo inspired to an extent by Barcarolas.
