'Four Short Pieces' were commissioned for Allen's Australian Bicentennial Anthology of piano music, published in 1988 and now long out of print. The details of the first performance are unknown; the first performance I heard was by Anna Klymashivka in Sydney in 1996. The pieces perhaps suggest nature images, but the only one that was a reaction to something specific is the last, which was suggested by watching and hearing a beck in spate (or flooded stream) on the west coast of Scotland
