Work Overview

Light was commissioned by the piano teacher Eleanor Drover whom the composer met in Hong Kong in 1995. Eleanor requested a set of children's piano pieces which were poetic and sensitive in character. Each of the pieces tells a story about some aspect of Light and how it affects our world. Eleanor and I started from the shared feeling that sensitivity and awareness developed in the young are a means by which violence can end.
