Four short pieces


For piano

Four Short Pieces were commissioned for Allen’s Publishing for their Australian Bicentennial Anthology of piano music.

About the work

The pieces perhaps suggest nature images, but the only one that was a reaction to something specific is the last, which was suggested by watching and hearing a beck in spate (or flooded stream) on the west coast of Scotland.

There are 4 movements:
II. Sensitively
III. With Energy
IV. Fiercely.


Four short pieces were published in 1988 by Allens but the album is long out of print.
