I have a strong feeling I have known this as a Strathspey in the past, and that it may even be in amongst the Kerr collection, which sadly I don’t currently have access too. Maybe after Hogmanay the Scottish contingent will return here and connect the dots? Or maybe my brain will rewire itself so that the necessary connections are made so my memory might work our more specifics? It is good to be reacquainted whatever the form, thanks GM…

Scottish?

I wouldn’t be surprised, it seems to have that flair to me. (But what do I know?)

Also, at the start of the B section, I like it with an f sharp in place of the first G sharp and in the other iterations of that phrase as well.

Take care,
Peter

Yeah I sorta got the notion it is a Scottish piece myself. Maybe it’s because of it’s bold approach. Just my opinion. I also read somewhere that A is the Scottish national key? Don’t quote me on that…
