Misc. Comments

Doorknocking... aha, a pun! This piece was written for a festival in Dornach, Switzerland, the center for Rudolf Steiner’s work. There could be an implication that, as Steiner knocked quite vehemently on the doors of what we think we know about the material world, this piece reflects that. Sadly that isn’t so. It’s just an elegant piece for piano.
