|Complete - Score & Part
Where Spirits & Demons Dance was originally written for Saxophonia, a saxophone choir which evolved out of the National Youth Wind Orchestra, and was premiered by them at their debut concert in April 1995, at the Purcell Room.
The inspiration came from the haunting and sinister sounds of an old barrel-organ I heard in the Bohemian heart of Amsterdam. The picture I've portrayed of Amsterdam's street life is one of conflict between it's superficial charm and the sleazier undertones of the environment.
I arranged ‘Demons’ for saxophone & piano a decade after composing the original piece and finally completed the flute & piano version in 2016.
