Programme Note

I was honoured to be asked by l’Orchestre National d’Île de France to write a short festive work to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. There are various musical influences and elements in my work, from pop, old-style Hollywood film music, game music, brass band music and Romantic orchestral gestures, incorporated into my own language. A continuous sense of pulse and ever-changing soundworld drives the music forward, leading to a ‘bacchanale’ dance to finish the work.
