This piece arose as a piano improvisation recorded while meditating on (or at least glancing at) Albert Wainwright's delightful illustrations of Lothersdale, Cowling and Ickornshaw in his guide to the Pennine Way. This partly explains the chaotic time signature. It's rather episodic, and almost like a paraphrase of something longer. The performer will need some sensitivity to negotiate the rather angular corners between sections. The tempi are a rough guide, the hands are sometimes at different dynamic markings, but it's not particularly difficult. I have a clear memory of drifting towards a resolution in C sharp instead of C major, and performing some unrepeatable modulation (bars 183 - 192) to end as planned. The Idyll is the section 109 - 114. Dream on.
