Product details

This was commissioned by Mrs Jean Cottral who lives near Melbourne. She had heard my music on ABC Classic FM and felt that I was the composer she would like to commission to write a piece of music in memory of her daughter Eve who died tragically young. She stipulated that it should be a Nocturne for solo piano, 3 to 4 minutes in length, melodic, elegant and dedicated to her daughter Eve, hence the title 'Nocturne for Eve'. My aim was not only to meet these requirements but also to create musically a portrait of someone now departed but still alive in our memory.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (5p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Medium

Duration: 4 min.

Commission info: Commissioned by Mrs Jean Cottral, who lives near Melbourne, and dedicated to her daughter Eve who died tragically young.

The composer notes the following styles, genres, influences, etc associated with this work: piano music of Debussy and Ravel

A simple A/B/A structure, the opening lyrical melody returning after the chordal climax. Expressive phrasing and subtle changes of tempo are necessary to capture the essence of this piece.
