Music and Letters was commissioned by the East London Late Starter’s Orchestra, and is built in blocks of contrasting textures, all stemming from material wrought from the name of the orchestra: an encoded dedicatory piece. Many changes of time signature, but manageable.
First Performance: ELLSO, 13th July 1997, St George-in-the-East, Wapping, London
A piece sensitive to the capabilities of amateurs – both strong musically and a good teaching work. Includes parts for beginner, intermediate and advanced players.
