So began a period of compositional activity which, although I was unaware of it at the time, would dominate the next few years of my creative life. When we were at the end of this rather intense process, I thought it would be interesting to take some of the themes which had become important in the series, and put them into a different and more intimate musical setting: as a solo piano concert. Thus I have selected four themes - two from previously extant material, two composed specifically for the series - and used them as 'springboards' for the extended improvisations on this album. The resulting journeys, almost 78 minutes in total, took me quite far from the source material, but I hope I have not lost its essential spirit...
A second concert from the same period but with an entirely different character is presented on a bonus disc, entitled 'The Cathedral Concert'.
