I’ve written quite a few pieces for piano recently, for various films and as concert works.(NB free downloads at the end)

Follow me here on Twitter and you’ll be the first to hear of future free downloads!

Here’s a track called Watermark for solo piano[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/watermark.mp3%5D

After the Moonlight (Piano Trio)[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/13-fast-gathering-tears.mp3%5DAnd… This is new too The Daguerreotype [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/jb2-old-photos.mp3%5DHere’s another recorded in Finchcocks, a stately home and piano museum. The instrument used is a Viennese double strung piano – a very rare and extremely fragile instrument. [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/04-moon-over-meadow.mp3%5D The piece is (as yet) unnamed, but is based on the idea of an empty drawing room at night – except, that is, for the piano. It holds within its wood and strings snatches of music, harmonics and melodies that others have played on it… Any ideas for names gratefully accepted – the more literary the better! Here’s a second piece recorded on a Steinway – a slow ballade waltz [Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/jb3-ballade.mp3%5D Here’s a third piece called The Long Letter[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/07-10-long-letter.mp3%5D Here’s the obvious one (of Jane Austen fame)… Crystallised Beauty – the (not often heard) full-length version of the track:[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/01-crystallised-beauty.mp3%5D And here’s one called for Elena[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/22-9-for-elena.mp3%5D This is a piece (with strings) called keep walking[Audio https://radiomovies.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/pssst.mp3%5D

    I think that you could call that un-named piece on the Viennese piano ‘Until Tommorow’, as if this moment (in the drawing room) must be preserved until tomorrow when the sun comes up and a new day begins, all else can wait until then. Little else has any significance, held in time. Well it’s just an idea anyway.

    Ok, it’s not just Crystallised Beauty – I really enjoyed the piano pieces, especially Keep walking.

    You are so gifted! Crystallized Beauty and The Long Letter are two of my favorite pieces of music now:-) Could you please send me the piano sheets for Crystallised Beauty for one piano? I have already downloaded the piano sheets for two pianos but I would like the sheets for one piano, too.

    These compositions are absolutely beautiful! I’d love to be able to play them. Is there any chance of the piano sheet music being shared?
