Programme Note

Gemini is a two movement work for violin and strings and was written for violinist Kerenza Peacock. It was performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra led by conductor Paul Bateman.

I wanted to explore some of the contrasting styles of Kerenza’s playing. The first movement has slow legato passages for solo violin which make use of Kerenza’s ability to draw a haunting sound from the instrument.The second movement reflects her ability to play folk style fiddle, but with a virtuosic twist.
