Sheet Music: Score
Wet night on the highway : for solo piano / Miriam Hyde.
by Miriam Hyde (1958)
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.
