Egg the Sixth: Two-part invention

Eggs 6 through to 9 were written as a set of not-terribly-strict two-part inventions for piano or harpsichord in 2006/7 as a way of easing myself back into composition after an extended period without writing anything. The two-line challenge proved perfect for the situation. I used the opportunity to explore melodic development and counterpoint a little, and while all four pieces are quite clearly individual works, they share a common approach and feel. While briefly Bach-like in places, these Eggs are far from pastiche, although they are perhaps among the more 'traditional' in approach of my compositions.

This recording is a MIDI realisation of the beginning of the piece.
