Work Overview

Composing this work gave me a great deal of pleasure. I gained my inspiration mostly from nature, windswept afternoons on a cloudy day, September in the rain, gardens on a sunny day in spring, Autumn leaves of red and gold, and places the composer likes to visit such as Windsor and the Hunter Valley in New South Wales and Ballarat in Victoria. The music is a reverie of elegiac pensiveness and contains repeated episodes with somewhat altered material. The work ends with an extended coda and is based on the following note row: D, Ab, A, C, Eb, E, Bb, B, C#, F#, F and G.
