These four short pieces were written at various times from 1987 to 1996.

No. 1 - A Tentative Tango was written in August 1996 to surprise a friend who wished to learn to dance the tango, and makes a good encore after a serious piece at a recital.
No. 2 - Meditation by contrast makes a serious ending if a lighter piece has been played. This was written in May 1996.
No. 3 - The Newbould Galop was written in October 1989 for Professor Brian Newbould, who conducted the first performance of the composer's Baltic Dances and was given this piece to play at the post-concert

party. It is in the style of Schubert, who only wrote one known galop, and was appropriate for Prof. Newbould who realised Schubert's 10th Symphony.
No. 4 - Bagatelle à la Prokofiev was written in March 1987 for Mr. Richard Walker who is a devotee of Russian music in general and Prokofiev in particular.

The sound sample is A Tentative Tango performed by David Martin
