Product details

This began on the way home from doing my first telecast - a wet night. As I waited for transport at Gore Hill, there was a certain romance about the busy Pacific Highway - reflected ribbons of light, the occasional dissonant motor-horn; red tail-lights disappearing to the left; the swish of headlights to the right, and the rain alternating between intermittent drizzle and heavy showers.
An impressionistic piece, yet with a lot of romantic feeling. Influences: possibly Debussy, Medtner (whom I heard in a piano recital in London in the 1930s) and I think Frank Hutchens (via Debussy!); maybe also a John Ireland type of pianism.
