Solvitrambulando – 22nd March

Thursday sees the premiere of my new piece for the Lancashire Sinfonietta at the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts‘ Great Hall. The orchestra is conducted by the Endellion Quartet‘s Andrew Watkinson who as well as conducting my piece and Mozart’s 40th Symphony, will also welcome guitarist Xuefei Yang to play concertos by Bach and Rodrigo.

My piece is entitled ‘Solvitrambulando‘, and its name comes from Solvitur Ambulando, a Latin phrase meaning ‘Solved by Walking’. It also features some devilishly high violin playing, a rather funky passacaglia and some Henry Purcell turned upside-down. If any of that whets your appetite, read more about it here or buy tickets here.
