Moto perpetuo : four-hand piano
by Anne Cawrse (2011)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
The prospect of composing my
first four hand piano piece was both exciting and inspiring; the
actuality of getting notes on paper and a score into Leigh and
Coady's hands with fair rehearsal time was, for most of the
process, a hard slog. Sadly for me, in its infancy the piece
turned itself into a bit of a mad rampage of notes, requiring
more effort, thought and 'cooking time' for both myself and the
performers. The frenetic pace and boisterous gestures which
envelop most of the work did not agree with my young sons nap
time, and hence it was with great relief I managed to pull
together approximately 9 minutes of music, conveniently shaped
into Rondo form, which I hope is entertaining for performers and
Instrumentation: Piano 4 hands.
Duration: 9 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by The Firm.
