When composing this set of three pieces I aimed at evoking some of the interplay that occurs between a loving couple: the bustle of shared lives, teasing and tenderness, the occasional huff; trusting display and the sense of wonder that intimacy can unlock.

The second and third movements fuse popular and classical idiom. The second movement is technically the easiest and is also the most lyrical (the ‘soft centre’). The first movement also contains elements of stylistic fusion, most conspicuously the unaccompanied blues solo given to the cello. This movement is the most demanding. The cello and piano are equal partners.

Note that the score has been designed to act as the piano part – it is not necessary to purchase the separate piano part (which has not been formatted).

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
