When Vivienne Spiteri asked me to compose a new work for her concert at the Teatru Manoel (in Valletta, Malta), she mentioned the prehistoric temples of Malta, said to be older than the pyramids of Egypt, as a possible source of thought or inspiration. Upon research I discovered the special sculpture of a reclining woman that is said to be thousands of years old, called Sleeping Lady, an image that gave rise to the title. For me, the harpsichord itself is like this sculpture, something that is old and a little bit forgotten in most contemporary music. Vivienne has dedicated much of her career to the interpretation and creation of new work for this old instrument. I am grateful to her for requesting this piece, and for the premiere performance.
