Programme Note:
Some years ago I took part in the Gaudeamus Young Composers' Workshop in Apeldoorn, Holland, where for many years the house band has been the raucous and powerful 'de ereprijs'. For the occasion I composed a short work, ironically entitled Easy Pieces; it really wasn't very easy at all! There was a competition, for which first prize was a commission, and I joked that if I won I would write a sequel called Sleazy Pieces. I didn't win, although Easy Pieces was a minor success, and the group selected it for their annual 'highlights' concert. Years later I was happy to be able to invite 'de ereprijs' to Birmingham as part of a UK tour, during which they revived the piece. We started talking then about a new work, and thus was Sleazy Pieces finally brought to fruition, some 11 years after its original tongue in cheek conception.
Sleazy Pieces is dedicated to my friend Andrew Staniland. I'm watching you man...
