Concerto Grosso no.1 was one of my first compositions intended for public performance. It was first played by the Viola d'amore Society of Great Britain soon after it was composed in 1993 (hence the inclusion of a viola d'amore in the Concertino lineup), and remained in their repertoire for years to come. Although the influence of the Baroque multiple concerto (particularly J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concertos and the multiple concerti of Vivaldi) is undeniable, the composition of this work coincided with my becoming familiar with the works of more modern composers such as Hindemith and Stravinsky - the ballet scores for Pulcinella and Apollon Musagette being particular favourites of mine. The influence of these neo-classical works has, I hope, made my Concerto Grosso more than a work of mere pastiche. If a viola d�amore is not available (they are quite hard to come by these days!) then a standard viola may be used in the solo quartet, for which �ossia� sections have been provided.
