Programme Notes

This is the sequel to my first 60-minute solo piano piece for the dark. Ten years on from the first Earth Hour, the fight for a world that curbs its carbon emissions and is more sustainable is unfortunately still on. It’s for this reason I was compelled to compose a second hour-long composition dedicated to this important cause. Like its predecessor, Earth Hour 2 allows the listener many moments to contemplate and ponder their place in the world and how they can all collectively make it a better place. But this piece goes one step further…

There’s a deliberate sense of urgency and dissonance in the tone here. Ten years ago, we knew about the dangers of climate change but it almost seemed abstract and distant at that time. Now it is very real and immediate. So as you listen to Earth Hour 2, let your mind ponder and reflect. But also please feel the critical and serious reverberations of the piano. Take that energy to get inspired to demand change…now!
