Hard Fairy

Soprano Sax and 2 Pianos (1994)
12 mins

HARD FAIRY was composed in 1994. A lot of the material used in the piece was composed for a BBC2 dance film, however this final version of HARD FAIRY is a complete reworking and restructuring without the visual and narrative elements. It is non-programmatic, works by juxtaposition of blocks of material and, I like to think, is propelled by rhythmic momentum until the final coda, when everything sits back and the whole business can be viewed from a different angle.


Please note – the pdf download of the performing score for the pianos is designed for A3 landscape format.
