Pastorale and Allegro  Pack image
ORCHESTRATION: Solo Violin, Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Bass, Harpsichord [optional]

'A tuneful piece for baroque string orchestra but with a modern sound' was the brief. The Chamber Ensemble of London first played the result at St Martin-in-the-Fields in 2005 and later recorded it. However, its actual premiere was in Plymouth Museum & Art Gallery the year before in a violin and piano reduction suggested by CEOL's director, Peter Fisher, who was the soloist.
The Pastorale was inspired by the gentle countryside of the South Hams, where Clive Jenkins now lives. The Allegro theme came to him when, out walking on Dartmoor, he saw a herd of ponies suddenly gallop off across the horizon.
The harpsichord is optional.
Duration 7 minutes
A PACK comprises one full score and string parts 4/4/3/4/2 plus a solo part.
A violin and piano reduction is also available - GM163.
