This piece was composed in 1987 for Jonathan Mallalieu, now artistic director of Beauville Arts in France, then a gifted viola player at Plymouth College, where Clive Jenkins was director of music. Jonathan recorded the piece with the South East Cornwall String Orchestra under Hans Kassier for BBC Radio Cornwall. Its first professional performance was by Steve Gleed with the South West Sinfonietta under Derek Kitt. A Viola (or Clarinet) and Piano version was made at the suggestion of Jeanie Moore MVO, concert organiser for Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery, for a lunchtime recital by Keith Lovell of the Dartington String Quartet with the pianist John Bryden.
