I’ve been commissioned once again to write for the Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra. This time they want my response to Mozart – a piece to accompany his 40th Symphony. Easy….

Flacubal 95 is a three-movement symphonic work based on Mozart’s 40th.

November

I’ve just finished work on a major new piece called “No Man”, for the Hastings Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra.

No Man is a journey, from the “No Man’s Land” of war to the “No Man is an Island” message of peace and unity in a year and country where telling this story seems more prescient than ever as division looms over our nation. In the anniversary year of the Battle of Hastings and the infamous bloodbath at the Somme, we are reminded of how fleeting and fragile our periods of peace have been and will be.
Drawing on texts in English, French and Latin by W. B. Yeats, Victor Hugo, John Donne, the Psalms of the Bible and Friedrich Schiller; No Man an Ode to Joy for the modern age using as its basis ancient Gregorian plainsong braided with a reforming of Beethoven’s famous theme, all told through the lens of the centuries of war, peace and artistic expression since then.
It is set over seven movements for two choirs (French and English, with texts in Latin for both), orchestra and soprano and tenor soloists.
It’s performed at  White Rock theatre, Hastings, on Saturday 12th November.
