Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Written in 2017, "Dedication" is a short piano piece dedicated to my wife Cecília Melo, where a certain amount of rhythmic freedom is intended to ease the performance, without loss of the musical content. Interwoven in the piece's fabric is the entirety of the Prelude in C Major of the first book of Bach's "The Well-tempered Clavier". The title alludes also to the famous poem by T. S. Eliot.
