Sonata for Cor Anglais and Piano is written for Celia Craig and David Barnard. It is the 13th in a series of sonatas written in the new millennium. The subtitle is taken from Kieron Connolly's book, Abandoned Places (Amber, London, 2016) - collected photos of derelict, forgotten and reclaimed buildings. I chose five pictures that most captured my imagination. The descriptions below for each movement are Connolly's words. The first three movements feature the cor anglais and piano together, but then the duo itself is abandoned, leaving the piano alone in the 4th movement and then the cor anglais solo in the final movement.
Instrumentation: Cor anglais, piano.
Duration: 23 min.
Contents note: I. Pripyat, Ukraine -- II. Plymouth Courthouse Building, Montserrat, Caribbean -- III. Clapham North deep-level air-raid shelter, London, England -- IV. Ernest Shackleton’s Hut, Cape Royds, Ross Island, Antarctica -- V. Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse, northern Jutland, Denmark.
