Victoriana

Victoriana is a classical orchestration I did from a Victorian piano selection by John Pridham. I was inspired by the cheerfulness of the music as well as the cover. My friend Colin Mason assisted me with Victorian images....

Apres Un Reve

I have always loved Gabriel Faure's beautiful music, his Requiem is an all time favourite of mine and has such lush songs! Apres Un Reve is a beautiful song for tenor and piano in its original version.

This video (my first attempt) was a visual illustration of my response to a commission, the remit was to arrange Apres Un Reve for six cellos (or more if possible). I was certainly up for the challenge as a musician, but I guess the commissioner didn't like the counter melody I wrote for the second half. Perhaps he just wanted a standard arrangement but sometimes the creative instinct just will out!!!
