In Interlude 1 (composed in 2018) each instrument describes its own trajectory across the space. A mosaic of melodic fragments on the flute is accompanied by the viola’s continuously ticking rhythm and the piano’s flowing arabesques. Interlude 2 (2021) begins like a Baroque trio sonata with duetting counterpoint, an independent bass, and with chords at the centre of the texture; then the music fades away in a calm passage of wide harmonies sustained by trills.

Interlude No 2 was first performed by The Duruflé Trio – Rosie Bowker flute, Henrietta Hill viola and Clare Simmonds piano – at a New Music Brighton concert on 17th June 2018 at St Luke’s Church, Brighton.
