Two liltingly romantic waltzes, the second marked 'Gently Swinging'. The first is based on a short ballet sequence on Oscar Wilde's 'The Nightingale and the Rose', composed for 'The Rose of Puddle Fratrum', an episode of the ITV children's series 'Dramarama' in the late 1970s. The work is an example of late twentieth century French-influenced romanticism, with a gentle jazz feeling in the second waltz and no reference whatsoever to modernist musical trends. It is extremely grateful to play and always pleases audiences. For secondary schools, colleges, conservatories and professionals.
