Arpeggiare Variations for Fenella Humphreys, Bach2TheFuture project 21 Jun

New unaccompanied violin work premiered at St. Magnus festival

The wonderful violinist Fenella Humphreys asked me to be one of six composers to take part in her visionary Bach2TheFuture project. This project sees Fenella commissioning 6 new solo violin works by contemporary British composers - Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Sally Beamish, Cheryl Francis-Hoad, Gordon Crosse, Piers Halliwell and myself - to be performed alongside the Bach unaccompanied Sonatas and Partitas. Arpeggiare Variations received its world premiere on Saturday 20th June at Kirkwall Cathedral as part of the St. Magnus Festival in Orkney. Its London premiere is due on 3rd November.
