Programme note This piece was written at the request of the talented young pianist Cordelia Williams. Brilliant and virtuosic, it take as its source of inspiration the solar wind. At times the wind delights in its dance through the cosmic dust and at other times it is powerful and dynamic. Occasionally you can hear deep bass notes like drums—a reminder of the distant heartbeat of the sun where the solar wind originates. Only at the climax near the end of the piece, does the solar wind revisit its origins before being propelled into the universe again amidst the swirling star dust.
