This short fanfare for piano was written to celebrate the 80th birthday of my mother, Elizabeth Scarlett. It was written in a single morning (24 April) in advance of her actual birthday on the 1st of May 2014. A pianist herself, Betty worked as a Lecturer in Music at Burwood College (later Victoria College, then Deakin University). After retiring, she completed a PhD on the music of Poulenc. Her love of music and the theory of music is a topic we still discuss (having followed her into the same profession) and this fanfare is therefore written to celebrate her ebullient nature and musical excellence. The first performance was given by Glenn Riddle at Elizabeth's 80th birthday celebration at her home in Brighton.
