Contemplation for piano and strings is a short reflective (movie-like) work. The work is minimalistic in quality- it has three small themes which form the basis of the piece, which mould, work and overlap together in the piece-It’s in D minor- string parts are simple-Piano part is mostly quavers. It is around 4 mins in length. The term “strings” in the instrumentation can either be for full string orchestra or any number of string players with the minimum of a quintet. The recorded version is full string orchestra Can be used for concerts, recitals, soundtrack- anything "a little different"
