Commissioned by Peter Fribbins on behalf of London Chamber Music Society for the Aquinas Trio. First performance on the 28th January 2018 at King’s Place, London.

‘…there proved to be plenty of “passion” in the work, generated by the rapid-fire juxtapositions, alternations and altercations of Inglis’s score, as well as contrasts between syncopated propulsion, rhythmic hyper-tension and disturbing dissipation of movement.

Inglis’s materials are eclectic and at times combative. He draws on gestures from diverse genres – jazz, the neo-baroque, Palm Court light music, to name but a few of the voices which jar against, superimpose upon, and fade into each other – and incorporates direct quotation … from piano trios by both Robert and Clara Schumann, Charles Alkan and Cécile Chamanade.’
