Work Overview

Each movement of this piece has a distinct mood and melodic element. The thematic material is shared equally, with moments in the solo spotlight for each player.

In this work I have tried to capture in music some episodes we all experience at times in our lives - we sometimes play games with our friends - tender or even a little malicious, or we find ourselves idyllically happy for a period. At other times we may be subject to a mood of The Blues - here a touch of the musical style created and celebrated by the American black community, but we all hope to escape The Blues and eventually find our way to a happy ending.
