On June 21st, the wonderful Siân Philipps played my ‘Nocturne’ and ‘Cortège?’ for violin and piano in Brighton. Both pieces are reflections on poems by García Lorca. She also played works by Vaughan Williams, Sally Beamish and Egon Wellesz. The concert was part of the Brighton Fringe. Both pieces will be played again in September (also in Brighton) by Ellie Blackshaw and Yoko Ono.
