Composed on the birth of my son, this Serenade generally conveys a mood of tranquility and calm, though it is not without the occasional 'tantrum'. Primarily exploiting the mixolydian mode, with occasional excursions into the lydian mode, the work builds its melodic ideas over lilting ostinati within the asymmetrical metre of 5/4.
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in B flat, 2 bassoons, 2 horns in F, 3 trumpets in B flat, 2 trombones, timpani, percussion, harp (or synthesiser on harp setting), strings.
Duration: 10 min.
