About

I did intend to sit down and compose an orchestral epic. I really, really DID, honest. Could I help it that as soon as I made that decision, the saxes started up a 1920s tea dance in my computer?! Only it’s not all sweetness and light and good ol’ days, in fact it sometimes gets a little murky in there, to say the least…


Commissioned note

This arrangement, of my own original work for standard sax quartet (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone), was commissioned by the Manukau City Concert Band for their alto sax quartet's performance at the 2011 NZCBA National Concert Bands Festival
