Composed in 1964, this wind octet is in three contrasting movements and is scored for the classical combination of pairs of woodwind and horns. The work has as its inspiration the classical octets of Mozart and Beethoven although the main compositional influences come from the 1930's 'neoclassical' soundworld of Stravinsky and Copland.
Octet was first performed at the Cambridge Music School in 1965.
