Work Overview

Written for Daniel Herskovitch and Rotraud Schneider while I was Composer in Residence at Trinity Grammar School and endeavouring to write something which would communicate to a wider school community at first listening. Winamin has become one of my more successful works with many performers over the years. The most recent recognition (as I write this in 2010) is the new CD release "Jewel" on the Atoll Label with Robert Constable and Elizabeth Holowell.
