Recorded by the composer on ‘100 Years of British Song’, vol.3. You can also see a video performance taken from recording sessions here.

Intermezzo was written in 2012 in response to a commission to celebrate a 90th birthday.

As the dedicatee was an amateur organist and pianist with Welsh roots, I based the work on a theme from a popular Welsh hymn, imbuing my variations with characteristics from the dedicatee’s other favourite music, the late piano works of Schubert and Brahms – simple canons, modal cadences, and a reflective, simple and whimsical tone.


A final score of the work will be published in early 2023 and available for download from this website.
