Farewell to Hirta

for piano

Francis Pott


Not currently available;

A ravishingly beautiful and moving rhapsody, […] both old-fashioned and contemporary. The writing is immensely graceful, an unpretentious, personal piece from a composer who really knows the piano.
Classical Piano (1999)
…Especially moving, […] all evocations of the sea—Debussy in the Hebrides, if you will, with that strange emotional ambivalence of a major-key lament.
Tempo (1999)
