Piano Piece No. 1
Piano Piece No. 1 was written for Roger Smalley and first performed by him a the Mahatma Ghandi Hall, London in 1966. The structure of the piece is a simple alternation, ABABA, though this structure is often articulated by a unity of mood rather than by literal repetitions. Towards the end of the piece thematic fragments from the two earlier sections are re-introduced although they are dashed together in a kind of collage.
