'Okuru' was written in 1979, while I was composer-in-residence for Northern Arts and a Fellow of Newcastle University. On one level the composition is the working out of a complex mensural canon, and on another is my response to the arrival of spring after a particularly rigorous winter, spent in an isolated cottage on the Northumbrian moors, north-west of Newcastle.
Performed by Rotraud Schneider (violin) and Daniel Herscovitch (piano)
