This is a set of eighteen children’s pieces dedicated to the pianist Andrew Wilde’s children Jennifer and Matthew. Notable among them are ‘Starry Night’, which is used in the love duet from The Picture of Dorian Gray, and ‘Rainy Day’ which is a reworking of one of the earliest pieces written by the composer as a child.

Voici un corpus de dix-huit pièces enfantines dédiées aux enfants du pianiste Andrew Wilde, Jennifer et Matthew. Parmi elles, «Starry Night», qui est utilisée dans le duo d’amour de The Picture of Dorian Gray, et «Rainy Day», qui fut la première pièce que le compositeur écrivit enfant, sont remarquables.

Diese ist einer Sammlung von achtzehn Kinderstücken, die Jennifer und Matthew, den Kindern des englischen Pianisten Andrew Wilde, gewidmet ist. Besonders zu nennen wären „Starry Night“ („Sternklare Nacht“), ein Stück, das im Liebesduett aus The Picture of Dorian Gray verwendet wird, und „Rainy Day“ („Regentag“), das erste Stück, das der Komponist schon als Kind schrieb.
