Rebecca Wiles who requested Seabourne's piano trio Last Dance

Last Dance - Piano Trio - 2010

duration 7 minutes

This short piano trio was written for Rebecca Wiles, David Larkin and Nancy Redman for a concert at the Guildhall School of Music in July 2010. It is, as Diaghilev famously said of Ravel's La Valse, a picture of dancing rather than a dance itself; in this case possibly with something of the feel of a 'pas-des-deux' in a late night café after everyone else has left. It is essentially a lyrical, romantic piece, with a passionate sense of movement. The two string instruments often play in octaves, and there is a fullness of scoring throughout. It could be used within a programme or even as an encore.

The work has since been played by Contemporary Consort at the King's Lynn Festival, and by Ostap and Olga Shutko with Miroslav Dragan at the Philharmonic Hall in Lviv.
