I have just finished working on Esquisses Verlainiennes – concerto for alto recorder, harpsichord and strings. The piece is inspired by poems of Verlaine, but also the imagery and paintings of his contemporaries. I wanted to explore a field that in a way could be considered to be related to film music. It is in many ways a form of abstract story telling. The premiere is to take place in Poland, with the magnificent ensemble Arte Dei Suonatori and soloist Bolette Roed at the helm.
