Anne Landa made an extraordinary and sustained contribution to the encouragement of young piansts in Australia, and although her legacy continues, her passion, energy and dedication were taken from us far too soon. This set of twelve small pieces is intended to be the successor to my Five Bagatelles, which I wrote in a rapid burst of energy twelve years ago. By contrast the new pieces emerged slowly, and sometimes with inexplicable difficulty. My musings on the writing process are provided elsewhere, and there is little else to say about the music except that each piece is as highly differentiated from its neighbours as I could make it.
