Commissioned by Roy Wales, Windmills of Time was premiered in St. John's Smiths Square, London in November 2000. Composed in celebration of Roy Wales sixtieth birthday, it traverses a number of mood changes intended to capture the energy and enthusiasm of youth, the seeking out of life's goals and the nostalgia of more mature reflection. It is cast in arch form with the opening sections returning in retrograde order such that the beginning and ending are conjoined in a cycle through time, as if driven along by that most natural of elements, wind.
Instrumentation: String orchestra.
Duration: 14 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Roy Wales
Commission note: Commissioned by on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday
