2015 begins

2015 beginsSweet 4 Chamber Orchestra

This brilliant realisation performed by Jeremiah Bornfield
of my Sweet for Chamber Orchestra (arr. Colin Bayliss)

can now be found on CDBaby

There are also videos available on

this playlist on youtube.

One of the videos is Pretty how town, which includes images from places where I lived in London in the 1980s,

including a rather sweet indoor mural by my flatmate Lissie, an outdoor mural on Chicksand Street

and views from the making of the film Little Lord Fauntleroy!

For anyone who would like to hear electronic previews of my music for the Austrian and Ancient Egyptian play ATON

- due to be performed in Innsbruck some time in 2015 -

they can now all be heard (with samples of the scores and option to buy the whole scores)

on the ATON catalogue

Holocaust Memorial

Brad Blitz, professor at Middlesex University, asked me to create a wind quintet version of my Variations on the Jewish prayer Adon Olam (Eternal Lord)

especially for the Holocaust memorial in Barnet, North London in January 2015.

I wrote it in record time and it was performed by musicians from the Firebird Orchestra for the event

(although they had to cut a few sections from my original in order to allow the Cantorial Choir to sing along with them).

You can hear the Adon Olam section, with choir and wind quintet on this mp3

The score for the wind quintet version (with electronic preview) can be obtained on Musicaneo
