Composed in 2007 for the composer's wife Cathy on the death of her much-loved Grandma Edith, they first performed the piece together in a recital in May of that year. While there was no conscious programme at the time of writing, the relationship between the violin and piano is perhaps a little like the human relationship, evolving over many years, which the piece commemorates: first the violin leads and the piano follows; later as the music matures, the piano takes the lead and guides the violin's phrases; a point of crisis is reached - and there follows a final passage of peace and repose, in which we might imagine a soul which is freed from all pain and suffering is able to dance again.
