Nocturnes and Chorales is a work for solo piano for Eve Egoyan. It is a series of nine short movements. As I was writing, these movements seemed to be either nocturne-like, or chorale-like in nature. At the heart of the music is the voice of the piano, its resonance and character, the way inner voices work in a chorale for instance, or the way melody and arpeggiation can create a landscape. Chopin and Satie were in the back of my mind, as well as Michael Finnissy, whose piano music Eve has championed. I would like to thank Artspring (Saltspring Island) for hosting my residency with Eve and funding the commission. I am deeply grateful to Eve for her input during the residency as well as her artistry and sensitivity, as always, in playing my music.
