In 2016 the BBC Concert Orchestra opened the annual English Music Festival at Dorchester-on-Thames in Oxfordshire with An Optimistic Overture, which I dedicated to the festival’s founder/director Em Marshall-Luck.
I was delighted therefore to be asked to provide another celebratory piece for the BBC Concert Orchestra to open the 2023 English Music Festival, especially as in addition to celebrating the orchestra and the English Music Festival it gave me the opportunity to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and also my own eightieth birthday which took place shortly before the festival!
