'My music is influenced by all kinds of polyphonic writing - meaning both vocal and instrumental varieties. Recently I have become interested in the ways in which musical forms based on rhythmic processes can enable layering to emerge, so that harmonies and textures coexist rather than resolve. Chamber Concerto, scored for seven players (Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Horn, Piano, Violin, Cello) works with this idea in a piece conceived for the virtuoso musicians of The New Music Players. The work is in four movements.' - Ed Hughes
Chamber Concerto was first performed by The New Music Players, conducted by Patrick Bailey, Kings Place, London, Out Hear Series, 27 September 2010.
