About

At an Auckland Philharmonia fund-raising auction in 2000, one of the orchestra's most generous sponsors, Dr Tom Morris, bid a substantial amount for a short ensemble piece to be written by the composer-in-residence. His was the choice of ensemble and title; the first performance was given in the Auckland Town Hall at the orchestra's 21st birthday celebrations in 2001, where it was played as a surprise for his wife, Ann, to whom it is dedicated, and whose birthday it also was. 'Serenade for Ann Morris' spans four sections in one movement, of which the second is for strings alone, and the third is an oboe cadenza.
