Shadow Variations at Surrey

February 2020: delighted that Samantha Muir is giving the UK premiere of Shadow Variations at the University of Surrey.

Shadow Variations for ukulele(s) was commissioned by Sam and received its world premiere in Australia in August 2019. It is an ensemble piece but very flexible in format; Sam is taking advantage of this and playing it as a solo interspersed with movements from her own piece, Theme and Variations on the Dowie Dens of Yarrow, upon which my music is based. There will be some re-arrangement necessary involving collapsing two parts into one – I look forward to hearing how this turns out!
