This is the second movement of a three movement work that had its first performance on 13th June 2004 as part of the Forum London Composers' Group Piece of the Year Competition. The three movements are:
Toccata - Presto Berceuse - Adagio Nuit Blanche - Allegro
The movements are linked thematically, with the second movement using material taken from the first while the third movement uses a twelve-tone row based on the accompaniment to the opening theme in the second.
The rules of the competition required flexible scoring with each part capable of being played by several alternative instruments:
Part 1 - flute, oboe, clarinet in Bb or violin Part 2 - oboe, clarinet in Bb or violin Part 3 - clarinet in Bb, french horn or viola Part 4 - bass clarinet, bassoon or violoncello
For the purposes of uploading the scores, the first and third movements are presented for string quartet and this second movement for a wind quartet: Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn in F and Bass Clarinet. Should any of the other permutations be required, please email me.
