Sensual, slow, romantic, expressive, beautiful, and calm, Absence 1 is a very short piano solo of 21 bars/measures.
Technically the notes are easy to play; the more demanding element is the expressive control of all the details.
The title Absence denotes drifting off into a short daydream, aware of but essentially ignoring the world around you. (We’ve all done it.)
I have written a number of very short pieces called Absence. They take an emotionally charged moment from a work I have already written and use that material for tiny concentrated variations. The source for Absence 1 is five bars from a tenor solo in my chamber opera The White Swan.
This very short piano solo was composed for the wonderful pianist Dominic Saunders.
