ACJW Engimas

Posted on Tuesday, August 31, 2010

The above photo is a clue to the title of the piece I'm writing for Ensemble ACJW. Very unusually for me, I have had a title and idea for the piece almost as soon as I heard the line-up, which is the same as Beethoven Septet (cl,hrn,bsn and one of each string) - with a couple of optional extras if I want them. Just in case I don't go with it I won't give away the title just yet, and of course this is just the sort of PR stunt which is bound to get the gossip columns going wild with anticipation and rumour.

Anyway, it was such a thrill to get this commission - my third from Carnegie Hall - particularly when I heard that it came by way of a vote from all the past Academy alumni as a kind of gift to the new batch that are entering the program this season. My work with ACJW has been some of the most rewarding of my career, and I can't wait for it to continue.

Now, it's nothing to do with James Bond, or Abraham Lincoln, what could it be....
