About

This work was originally composed as a piano duet to commemorate the occasion of the retirement of the composer's first piano teacher, and appropriately is one of the few Psathas' works suitable for performances by young players. It is a simple and tranquil meditation in which gently pulsing chords provide hushed support to a delicate melody. At the time of its composition, Psathas was engaged in writing his double concerto for percussion, piano and orchestra, View from Olympus, and in mood and musical material, Fragment is related to the second movement of that work. It was first performed by Anne Jago and Dermot Horne in March 2001.
