Waltz

I wrote this piece in active contrast with a lot of the other pieces I’ve written over the past while. It’s a small chamber piece that meanders through what is effectively a theme and variations. The arpeggiated piano line is contrasted with the broader viola and cello lines, which weave in and out of each other.

I wanted to try something a bit different (for me, at least!) by switching the melodic aspects of the piano from the right hand to the left; this results in a repeated ostinato phrase in the right hand while the left hand outlines the richer harmonic and melodic figures.

In writing this piece, I really just wanted to write something which would give me a sense of space and openness.
