Whereas many composers have written piano works inspired by children and the way children perceive the world around them, Childhood memories goes a step further by evoking these sentiments remembered by an adult many years later. As the adult reflects on the bright and carefree days of his or her childhood, inevitably, these reflections become colored by hitherto extraneous, un-childlike sentiments such as nostalgia and a pervading sadness brought on by the realization that those days are now lost forever. In Childhood memories, the recollections of moments and events in the child’s life are presentedalmost chronologically, beginning with the energetic pedaling of Bike ride and ending with the bittersweet festivity of Happy birthday! Thus, as the child grows and his or her understanding ofreality becomes more acute, so the psychological and technical aspects of each individual piece’smusical language become more complex.

Style: Post-Romantic; excellent pieces for concert performance and exam purposes. Technical difficulty: medium to difficult. Duration: 12 minutes circa.
