Last Wednesday, the Finzi Quartet (pictured) and Ed Saddington, conducted by Andy Morley, performed the premiere of my piece ‘High Flight’. This was part of a musical commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and my piece was one of six specially written for the occasion, the other five having been written by current Trinity composition students.
The concert was extremely successful, the musicians performed beautifully. I was very impressed with all of the new pieces, and they all fitted together extremely well. The concert was recorded by Trinity, and I shall keep you posted as soon as I get a copy. Also, Ed Saddington will be performing a version of the piece with piano accompaniment as part of his final recital this year.
