Originally composed for guitar, violin and cello in 2007, as the title suggests my intention with this work was to evoke Cypriot music. I did not include any folk music but wanted the piece to sound as if it was folk music! In some places it may be reminiscent of flamenco.
As I am a romantic at heart the piece would hardly have been complete without a ‘romantic’ middle section. The cello part, played in this instance by the violin, includes an ad lib section that evokes the sensation of floating in the air.
