"Five-Piece Suite" (1994-9) - "April Rain" - Young European Strings Chamber Orchestra
In 1999 I compiled my Five Piece Suite for string orchestra from two earlier collections of children's pieces. The first set, from which I arranged nos 1, 4 and 5, was called Birds and Beasts (1994) for violin and piano, and was written for my niece Mary Deane. The 2nd and 3d pieces were culled from Spring Leaves, a cycle for flute and piano commissioned by the Contemporary Music Centre in 1998.
