Solitary City

Solitary City for horn and string orchestra (1997)
c. 10 mins: Grade 8+
A virtuosic piece written in response to a passage from Lamentations. Commissioned by Colchester New Music for Clare Hutchings and the Guildhall String Ensemble, but the performance never happened. Despite enquiries it’s not been performed since either! The composer thinks it’s a ‘good piece’ but feels that it is different in style to most of his other music.  Make of that what you will….
