With Love I & II for piano /1984/
I composed these piano pieces on a commission from the Swedish Concert Institute for the piano project Swedish Pianorama 1985. At that time I had just finished my choral suite to love based on seven poems by e. e. cummings. In the first and last movements of the suite I had been dealing with certain chord progressions that I wanted to continue developing. This I did when working on the piano pieces.
They are dedicated - with love - to two pianists who are very dear to me: Stig Ribbing who was my piano professor at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and Carl-Axel Dominique who is and old buddy from back in the 1950s.
