Seascape Passion: Midday Brightness (Third Piano Sonata)
LKMP X410026/ HL 41667
Seascape Passion: Midday Brightness (Third Piano Sonata) (2002) was commissioned for and is dedicated to pianist and composer Marco Modaro. It was inspired both by his own compositional work and his pianistic abilities. The other inspiration for the work is taken from the writings of the Scottish poet George Mackay Brown (1917-1996), much of whose work dealt with the "transposition" of religious imagery and symbolism from its traditional context into the context and distinctive landscape of his native Orkney Islands of North Scotland.
