As I hadn’t performed professionally since 1989 it was hard to think of a suitable work that would be both appropriate and easy enough for my dwindling keyboard skills. I decided it was simplest to write a short work just for the occasion, and Threnody was born. Having grown fond of the work, it seemed wasteful not to have a context in which it might be useful, so I made it the last in this set of Five Bagatelles.
