The Distance of Night was written in memory of Simon Bainbridge, my old teacher, friend and colleague. Simon loved to travel and one of his favourite cities to visit was Venice. With that in mind, I’ve written a slow barcarolle.

The piece is one of 200 solo pieces written to commemorate the bicentenary of the Royal Academy of Music.

The first performance was given by Harry Rylance at the Angela Burgess Recital Hall, Royal Academy of Music, London on 22 June 2022.
