Balalaika and Cor Anglais Jig for Geof Score

Written one wet Saturday, (just like today as it happens) showing Geof how I work with Sibelius (I now use Dorico). Rather relaxing piece in the end.

Blueish Slow Work for Broken Consort Score

This piece was written for a competition at St Andrews University to have a piece performed by the new music ensemble there.  And I won! so this was performed in public in the Younger Hall.  Which was great to part of.

Flute         Clarinet in Bb         Bassoon         Piano         Violin 1         Violin 2         Viola      Violoncello       Double Bass

Introduction and Fugue 8 Score 

This was also written for the St Andrews new music ensemble but because I misread the information, not sent off in time.  Based on a piano fugue written at the same time Fugue 8, hence the title.

Violin 1      Violin 2         Viola         Violoncello         Double Bass

Op 19 exercise in the golden section score 

Op 19 exercise in the golden section.  A Kingston Upon Thames Piece, checking out the golden section.  The scoring is down to instruments available in the class.

Techno Piece for school orchestra score 

Techno Piece for school orchestra, written for Monifieth High School Orchestra.  The name gives it away.  Should be fun, but was never performed.

Wedding Waltz for Joyce and Kenny with orchestra score 

Wedding Waltz for Joyce and Kenny with Orchestra.  This was written for friends Joyce and Kenny who got married and this was there wedding dance piece.  I asked Kenny what instrument he liked most and it was the trumpet.  So I wrote a Piano and trumpet piece first.  As the couple were older and definitely very Scottish I thought it was appropriate as a dance to have a Scottish Waltz.  They seemed to like the piece which was great.

Flute         Oboe         Clarinet in Bb         Bassoon
Horn in F         Trumpet in Bb
