An hypnotic, introspective piece written over a left-hand (mostly a-minor) ostinato with a peaceful dreamlike quality. Quiet melodic fragments build, become more insistent, then fade away.
Although the notes are not technically hard, the expressive nuances and ritards make it a different kind of challenge for the young pianist. The meter is mostly 6/8 but occasional shortened measures let the music surge forward and keep the player counting.
Daydream was selected as a contest requirement for the Renee Fisher Foundation piano competition in Connecticut. A student in the Junior Division performed it at their winner's concert in May 2002.
