I am an enthusiastic amateur musician - mainly on the cello with the Stratford Symphony orchestra and various chamber groups but also a bit of classical guitar and piano. I started composing about 15 years a go and try a do something whenever I get any time away from work which is not often these days. More recently I also started making classical guitars in the garage putting my woodworking skills to productive use where I can enjoy playing the fruits of my labour.

The Elements – for string orchestra (or quartet)

I have just finished revising a new suite for string orchestra called the Elements (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) following an initial round of comments from a few friends. Hopefully this version is a little more interesting!

Notation was made with Sonic Scores’ Overture 5 and recordings were made using the Amadeus Symphony Orchestra VSTi.

Score and parts:

The elements – score

The elements – Violins I

The elements – Violins II

The elements – Violas

The elements – Cellos

The elements – Basses

A version for full orchestra is here

L’Amour de Moi – Arrangement for 4 cellos

Here is a little arrangement (theme and variations) I made of a traditional 15th century French song for our latest cello weekend with Miranda.
