about

I am very proud of this album and feel that it represents a step forward in my development.
Aside from the first piece "Our Own Private Language" which is dedicated to my partner Claire Baujard, the majority of the album is influenced by the horrors of war and persecution in the 20th Century.
Radnoti I & II are named for Hungarian poet Miklos Radnoti, who was tragically murdered in the Holocaust.
The last piece of music "Some Desperate Glory" takes it's name from a Wilfred Owen poem, and is based upon the image of fresh, newly recruited and trained soldiers marching towards what is quite definitely not "Glory", and was envisaged as a requiem for the First World War.
