The title Grauschlieren, meaning ‘grey streaks’, is taken from a painting by Gerhard Richter, and this torso for clarinet quintet is an attempt to render audible some of the notions of greyness, repetition and blurring prompted by a viewing of Richter’s work in San Francisco in 2002.

Grauschlieren was given its first performance by Andrew Sparling and Exposé, conducted by Roger Redgate,
 at The Warehouse, London, England, 4 December 2003.
