Album Notes
‘Slow Movements’ was composed in 2010 on hearing the news of my grandfather Jack Pearl’s illness and subsequent death. He was a passionate music lover, especially fond of Beethoven and Schubert. At that time I listened to quite a bit of their music, mainly the recordings of Alfred Brendel, who was another favourite of my grandfather. In everything I listened to, the slow movements seemed the most poignant, so I decided to write a series of slow movements dedicated to him, to try and capture the sense of melancholy associated with such events. The eighth movement was played at the funeral.
