Tarte au Citron  Pack image
ORCHESTRATION: Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Bass
Tarte au Citron was written for a concert about food at the Banqueting House in Whitehall, London. Rossini was the chef. Handel provided the appetiser (and the appetite!). The Roast Beef of Old England and other musical dishes were washed down with champagne. Peter Fisher, director of the Chamber Ensemble of London, asked for a new jazz piece for the pudding so Clive Jenkins baked his favourite - Tarte au Citron. The work has now been recorded by the Chamber Ensemble of London.
Duration 4 minutes
A PACK comprises one full score and string parts 4/4/3/4/2.

The British composer Clive Jenkins was born in Plymouth in 1938 and educated at Plymouth College and Pembroke College, Oxford, where he read modern languages. He shows his West of England roots in many of his compositions. The narrative work White Bird based on a Dartmoor ghost story and the widely-performed cantata The Mayflower Pilgrims are two examples. As associate composer with the South West Sinfonietta and the Ten Tors Orchestra he wrote many works featuring solo instruments. For the Chamber Ensemble of London he has composed and arranged music for special concert programmes at the V & A, the London Film Museum in County Hall, the Banqueting House, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St James's Piccadilly, Kings Place and the Purcell Room.
