    Lacus Felicitatis (piano, left hand solo)

    This solo for piano, left hand, was written to keep the stress level as low as possible while waiting for the election results. I had been wanting to write a left hand solo for some time, and the election provided the opportunity.

    The mp3 uses the GPO Steinway, obviously, the better way to listen.

    To listen to the mp3, just select the mp3 bar near the top of the page. To view the score, you will need the free Scorch plug-in, and instructions will be available where the score ought to be. Using Scorch, you can view the score and hear a general midi playback. You can also set GPO Studio as playback device, and load the Steinway into slots 1 and 2.

    I suspect some leftward-leaning political implications
    in this piece, Richard... lol. The inversion of attention
    into the left hand works well in this... and if somewhat
    arabesque in places, the sinuous lines fall comfortably
    under the hand.

    Well, I really worked hard to make it fit the hand as smoothly as possible. It seemed okay to my small hands.

    There is also a second piece derived from the same sketch, for the usual complement of hands. It will be part of a larger work. Working out the ideas for the rest is wrecking my sleep!
