The tension between the piano's percussive mechanism and the fluidity of water has borne fruit in countless works for piano: from Ravel's Ondine and Chopin's Raindrop Prelude, to Schubert's Am Meer. Not coincidentally, these works were among those played by my grandmother as silent film "scores" in the small New Zealand town of Takaka. In Aquamarine watery fragments from the musical past refract and reflect.
