David’s compositions

My first orchestral composition, Night of Meditation,was written in my first year at the RMCM and performed by the BBC Northern in 1966. Since then most of my writing was for students with whom I was working, from juniors through to youth orchestras. Along the way I wrote a string quartet, a sonata for bassoon & guitar and one and a half musicals. The completed musical, The Mathais Albani, remains unperformed except in a concept version with me doing all the singing.

I have recently been introduced to SoundCloud as a method of releasing my output to the general public, albeit in electronically produced versions, using Sibelius software and Garritan Aria sampled sounds. Some pieces are already on Sibelius, so will be easier to upload. The stuff painstakingly written by hand may take a little longer!
