About

Written in 2000, the 250th anniversary of the death of J.S.Bach, this piece was entered in a competition organised by Japanese publishers Zen-On Music for a short piece having some connection to the great composer. The winning pieces (of which mine was not one) were then published in an album by Zen-On. In my meditation the BACH motif is arranged over four white notes of the piano (B-A-D-C). This gives the piece a more relaxed and modal flavour. The piece is dedicated to Peter and Kristen Carey, and received its first performance by Ross Carey at Marama Hall, the University of Otago, Dunedin in November 2000 as part of my solo recital at the end of my year as Mozart Fellow there.
