Ye that pipe and ye that play cover

The initial idea for this piece came from the 'touch' of the keyboard, a tactile experience that developed into a battle between legato and staccato. For a short time the staccato element is dominant; later, with the 'piping' of the title, a legato expressive melody asserts the string side of the duo. In general the legato phrasing is in the right hand, while the left provides the staccato. The title is a reference to Wordsworth's poem, Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood. Commissioned by Feis Ceoil, Dublin, with funds provided by Siemens Nixdorf, as a test piece for the European Music Competitions for Youth (Senior Competition), 1996.
