Hunting with Orion

I’m looking forward to the first two performances of Orion, a new piece for Horn Trio, written for Alec Frank-Gemmill, Florence Cooke and Daniel Tong.  When I wrote the piece, last summer, I became completely drawn into a very intense, driven interplay between the three instruments, each so utterly different in tone and character from the others.  This interplay makes the piece hard to put together, but generates a good voltage in the process, I hope.  Performances in Ludlow and Derby make a good excuse to visit some wonderful parts of the country, too.
