Chamber Ensemble
Another Silly Love Song
Reworked for smaller ensemble: cello solo, flute, clarinet in B flat, violin, viola vibraphone and piano
Performances at the Musikinstitut in Erlangen, 21st April 2012 and at the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, 23rd April 2012. Both performances given by the Ars Nova Ensemble Nuremberg, conducted by Werner Heider. "Another Silly Love Song" has been rearranged for Ars Nova Ensemble by the English-German composer who has been living for years in Nuremberg. It is certainly not a silly love song that Werner Tauber (solo cello) wants to sing to us with his gentle, romantic voice. Olive cleverly allows his love to be disturbed by the reality of the other instruments which interrupt and ensnare the cello player. Olive will no doubt forgive Werner Tauber for not singing but speaking the last triumphal words "I love you!". (Cora Uttting, Erlanger Nachrichten, 24th April 2012)

Sakura
for flute, bassoon and piano (ca. 8') (2007) fue 10019 ISMN: 979-0-50182-019-1

Commissioned by TRIO 37. First performance in May 2007 at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Tage aktueller Musik in Nuremberg.
The piece is based on a Japanese folksong - "Sakura" (Cherry Blossom). The piano provides a bell-like carpet of sound above which the flute and bassoon weave their complex but passionate and lyrical dialogue. A very difficult piece.

Also available on CD in the version for brass ensemble (see above).

Five pieces: 3 ragtimes alternate with 2 melancholy, lyrical pieces. Written in the style of "upmarket" entertainment music, with catchy melodies. Written for good players with plenty of routine.
   

Ceilidh for solo accordeon (ca. 20') (2005) fue 4910 ISMN: 979-0-50012-991-2

Based on British folk dances the work depicts a rather wild dance evening in Scotland. Difficult, demanding work -some movements need to be played very fast and virtuosically! First performance: Nuremberg in June 2005.

"Bush Gin Rag" (2004) for piano solo. A fun piece that I wrote for my friends in Bundanon.


".and the willows drowse and sleep." (2002) Chamber music with harp inspired by a poem by the American poet, Carl Sandburg. The piece was written during a stay in Louisiana - in a house in the middle of the forest. It's about willows and water - willows that fall asleep by the water....
