I had a brief attack of the “lovelies” when composing these works. It was short lived. These pieces were written at different times. Movement 1 has something of that haunting quality associated with early (pre-twelve tone) Schoenberg or Berg, albeit considerably more delicate. The second ruminates about my significant other of the time, with echoes of the lyrical Mahler. The third shamelessly pays its respects to Satie, with all the poignancy associated with that composer.
