Quirk No.1 was the first piece of mine to receive a professional performance when Concorde premiered it in 2001. The premiere occurred very shortly after my mother Joan passed away. I re-arranged it in 2004 for violin and cello for members of an ensemble I started up at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where I did my Masters in Composition. The MIDI version of this piece was the last piece of music of mine that my mother heard. When she heard it she said it sounded to her like a butterfly and a bee dancing in the air above the traffic. I’ll leave that image as the programme note for this piece in her memory. RIP Joan Jennings.
