Solo piano, c. 4'02.  AMEB Grade, LMus

'This undoubtedly shows the influence of my year's study with Arthur Benjamin (Australian-born composer-pianist)  in London, 1935. In his own writing, even in the elementary works, one sees his characteristic way of using neat, interlocking figuration between the hands, with an intimate feeling for the sheer black and white pattern of the keyboard. I used to watch with interest his own deft type of pianism.
The middle section changes from the dynamic rhythmic character to one of my quasi-Spanish interludes.'
Composed 1936

Recorded and performed by the composer on Piano Imagery (Wirr 084), available online.
