Sunday Afternoon, Piano solo.

Born spontaneously on a lazy Sunday afternoon, this piece for piano solo marks the first of what will develop into a collection of vignettes for various ensembles. The aim for this piece and for the works that will follow it, is quite simply to build an impression of a moment. In this case, quite a lovely moment.
