“Flutes Inspired”

I was very happy to present and take part in the first play through of my new composition for flute ensemble “Much Balding in the Marsh” at the Flute Day organised by Elisabeth Hobbs with her group Flutes Inspired.

Mr G.C. with Richard Michael


I wrote this piece shortly after Graham Collier, my friend, mentor maybe, and the guy who gave me my first chance on the big stage, passed away. It doesn’t sound like his music and isn’t supposed to, but I was thinking Mingus and Ellington, two great influences on Graham. This recording was made for BBC Radio Scotland and I’m playing with the fantastic pianist, Richard Michael.
