Passi Leggieri (2003)
commissioned by the Ultima Festival, Oslo
Chester Music Ltd
Solo Works (excluding keyboard)
This is essentially a small dance piece in two sections. The name passi leggieri means 'light steps' (as in dance steps). I have used a traditional tuning for the instrument, but the music bears little relationship to traditional Hardanger fiddle music.
