Programme note:

Five Pieces for Wind Instruments was written for The Southwark Consorts of Winds - The Ancient and Modern Consort.

Each of the five movements subject familiar musical stereotypes to simple but rather strict processes.

The first movement is a march where the phrase lengths are gradually shortened. The second movement presents a simple melody imitated by other instruments. The middle movement, which is like a hinge in the overall structure, is a canon - where the imitation is between two groups. The fourth movement is a reverie with slight but systematic changes to the sustained harmony. The fifth movement is a jig or waltz where the phrase lengths are, unlike the first movement, gradually lengthened.
