Programme Note

Suite for Piano and Orchestra was written for Huw Watkins. The first movement opens with a solo piano passage, the theme of which is later quoted in the following allegro section. I used the opening piano melody in the brief slow movement to create the main theme for the last movement, which has a playful character.

Suite for Piano and Orchestra features on the album ‘Arcadia', performed by Huw Watkins and the London Symphony Orchestra. Conducted by Paul Bateman.
