Games draws its inspiration from the first movement of Shostakovich's String Quartet No.3, Op. 73, particularly the opening theme, played by the first violin. I have taken this melody and played games with it; twisting it, bending it, fragmenting it and developing the resulting material in ways that journey far from the theme. The outcome is a new and exciting piece of music.

Games was used as a compulsory piece in round two of the Adam International Cello Competition in 2006.
