Programme Note

This miniature was written at the request of Julian Anderson who asked several composer friends to write short piano pieces for himself to play during the Coronavirus lockdown in 2021. At around the same time, one of my composition teachers, Simon Bainbridge, sadly passed away and I decided to use the opportunity to write a little 'in memoriam' to him. The piece makes use of the musical pitches available in the name 'Bainbridge' and also makes reference to my own Divine Radiance which I wrote under his supervision and which is dedicated to him.
