Cat's Play was written for Antonietta Loffredo and the inaugural toy piano festival, 'Music as Play - The Toy Piano Takes the Stage', held in Como, Italy, July 2019.
All the pieces submitted to the festival were played by Antonietta. Two cats were particularly in mind when Cat's Play was written - Felix the Siamese and Alessandro Scarlatti's Fugue in G minor (K. 30, L. 499), the 'Cat's Fugue', which is quoted in Cat's Play.
A short, theatrical piece between the keyboard and three toys, Cat's Play is for 25-key toy piano, castanet (clack), horn and bell. The three toys are of unspecified pitch and all must be able to be hit with one hand to sound. They sit on the top of the toy piano (and a music stand can be placed behind the instrument).
