About

Although the work was not commissioned, it was indirectly 'requested' by Ross Carey, who performed Aquarius I in a New Zealand Piano Music concert on 30 March 2008. Aquarius I was written for, and premiered by, Anita van Dijk in 2000, and there was a note at the end of it saying that "Aquarius II may emerge at a later date" – it was in response to Ross' enquiry about this that I was spurred to write Aquarius II. Both works are dedicated to Anita van Dijk, upon whose birthday numbers they are based.

Aquarius II is the sequel to Aquarius I.
