Water Works for Helen Ottaway

Released 2012
Released 2012
An album of new piano pieces from 'A Raindrop' to 'A Sea'.
'Water Works for Helen Ottaway' was composed in 2010 for my long term collaborator and friend, the composer and pianist Helen Ottaway, who hosts a radio programme on FromeFM called 'Take Me To The River'. It comprises six relatively short pieces for solo piano, with the titles ranging in size from 'A Raindrop' to 'A Sea'. In the fifth movement 'A Lake', the music of right and left hands is exactly reflected.
