Signature Moments
For piano.

This collection of 20 ‘Signature Moments' was written as part of the preliminary work on Sounding the Deep, Nigel Morgan's large-scale composition for Hull Philharmonic Orchestra and singer James Gower.

Sounding the Deep celebrates the pioneering deep sea explorations of William Beebe, who in the 1920s descended to a depth of half a mile in a ‘Bathysphere' constructed by his colleague Otis Barton.

Each signature moment is a musical miniature reflecting a section of the libretto for Sounding the Deep, written by Nigel Morgan and Phil Legard after Beebe's book on his undersea adventures: Half Mile Down.

These signature moments join Nigel Morgan's existing collections of miniatures for piano: Fifteen Images (Le Jardin Pluvieux) and The White Light of Wonder.
