Program Notes

Described as a 'Celebratory Prelude', Ovation was commissioned for the 500th anniversary of the Worshipful Company of Musicians in London.

The work is built on three key themes. The first is broad fanfare idea which opens the piece and returns in a fuller glory at the close. The second is a rhythmically charged theme that also works in canon. A more sustained lyrical theme provides the third subject. These latter two are played against each other framed by the opening fanfare motif.
