The works in this collection were specially commissioned by the 1994 GPA Dublin International Piano Competition (with funding provided by The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon) as test pieces for the competition.Brian Boydell, John Buckley and Jane O’Leary, three of Ireland’s most prominent composers, have written recital-standard works in very contrasting styles. Boydell’s The Maiden and the Seven Devils is a lyrical, pianistic piece subtitled ‘A Legend for Piano Solo’. Buckley’s The Silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun, takes its inspiration from lines in W. B. Yeats’ poem, The Song of Wandering Aengus. Jane O’Leary’s From the crest of a green wave, a title taken from Brendan Kennelly’s poem, A Music, moves through a series of episodes, each growing out of common musical material.
