Peterborough-born Peter Thompson is a prolific and respected composer…
Murray McLachlan, International Piano (November/December 2011 p83)
Thompson’s music is […] an elegiac tribute in sonority, and is appropriately laid out with quasi-instrumental colours, expansiveness and a sense of contemplation.
Murray McLachlan, International Piano (November/December 2011 p83)

This piece was written in memory of John Barton Armstrong, a Renaissance man. The front cover depicts the Aerial Screw, an early helicopter design by Leonardo da Vinci (the original Renaissance man), thus recalling J.B.A.’s aeronautical connections.
