Old and Laboured

Dusk at the Naze (Old and Laboured)


Improvisation. I could rehearse it to perfection but...would it sound authentic?

New improvisation. I haven't improvised in years. Just a conversation with a younger composer inspired this little work in me. I need to get back into improvising it freshens up your work with new ideas even if you do like to write out on Sibelius. Was that a missed note at the end or does it fit in with the theme? You decide. I quite liked that missed note in the recapitulation it's a beautiful little smudge, makes it a bit less like Debussy after all. I thought, oh no, and then, but why not?
