In The Evening By The River

This is another track inspired by the countryside of Northumberland. The river in question in the Coquet – pronounced “Kohk-ut” which is about 40 miles long and flows from the Cheviot Hills to the North Sea. I tried to construct the piece to represent the gently flowing river passing a fixed point – the first note you hear is ‘G’ in the right hand, and later, lower in the left. This note acts as the constant reference point , while the music moves around it – it disappears for the odd bar or two, only to reappear again soon after. The left hand ‘ripples’ as the right hand plays the melody.
