Serenade
 
for  Piano  or  Harp   

  Notes    

        Serenade for Piano or Harp is a gentle venture into the Romantic tradition, presenting a plaintive melody in the soprano line in rising and falling waves of intensity. This thematic presentation gives way to a light and fancifully contrasted middle section.  Where Serenade’s first theme is set in the courtly meter of a sarabande, the second theme is marked by dancing triplet rhythms and elusive episodic development. The strains of the opening sarabande are recapitulated, but the return is altered by a transformation from minor to major mode and further enhanced by the introduction of triplet accompanimental patterns. Serenade ends with a briefly sweet cadential reference to the fanciful escapades of the middle section.

        Serenade
was originally written for performance on the harp but has been revised and edited here for piano performance.
