Prelude and Postscript for piano, opus 100 no. 1 (2015)

  1. 1. Prelude – Very slow…Faster, flowing
  2. 2. Postscript – Very slow

Prelude and Postscript is a short work in two movements for solo piano written during a winter residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada. It was written for Antony Gray who gave its first performance in London in 2015. The work is the first set of a series of short piano works in the opus 100 set including Two Interludes and Moon and Ocean.

For a while the first movement, Prelude, carried the working title of Ice Lake which seemed apt for the wintry environment in which it was written.
