Programme Note

Following my discovery of minimalism in the year 2000, it became natural
for me to compose a piece that would draw on minimalist techniques.
Rainstorm, as the title would suggest is a description in music of a
rainstorm, from small drops to a full storm and then back again. Since
writing the piece I found that Leo Brouwer has composed a similar piece
for guitar quartet. This is a pure coincidence, as I hadn’t heard
Brouwer’s piece before!
