A Robertsbridge Estampie (2010) for piano was written for Jeffrey Grossman. It is a concert piano transcription of an anonymous estampie from the Robertsbridge Codex (c. 1360), the earliest surviving collection of music explicitly written for keyboard (likely a portative organ). The medieval two and three voice original is re-imagined in the context of the style and technique of the modern piano.
