My 'Serenade for Strings' was written especially for the Tyneside Chamber Orchestra during the summer of 2003. It is in three movements. In the first a somewhat ascerbic violin melody floats over a threateningly active viola/cello line. Near the end the tension is relaxed somewhat with a sucession of major chords. In the slow movement an initially simple homophonic tune proliferates into a more contrapuntal section before reverting to the simplicity of the opening. For the finale I lighted on some discarded material from a wind quintet. Here a vigorous motif in compound time alternates with a more pleading theme. Towards the end of the movement the former leads into a four part fuge followed by a broadening out of the pleading theme and a final appearence of the initial motiv.
