Written in 1998 for the confirmation of his daughter, this occasional piece shows a very different side of Eftestøl’s character to the densely allusive Seven Allegorical Pictures
. After a few flourishes to warm up the fingers, it takes the well-known Northumbrian folksong Dance to your Daddy
on a giddying journey, with constantly changing metres and cross-accentuation.
