Violin Sonata

Performed by Alexandra Wood on violin and Huw Watkins on piano


1st movement - Sonata.
A lyrical opening theme gives way to a tense, urgent second theme. Both are then discussed and reprised. A reflective coda follows.

2nd movement - Toccata.
Virtuosic and fast paced. In A/B/A/coda form.

3rd movement - Song
A moving theme with a quicker, nervous central section.

4th movement - Variations.
As the title suggests, with a reprise of the first theme from the first movement followed by a final coda.

Partita Concordia for string trio

Performed by Alexandra Wood - violin, Levine Andrade - viola, Richard Harwood - cello


The Partita Concordia was written in response to being deeply moved by Bach's solo violin Partitas and the Cello Suites.
Each movement uses a dance form and more often than not retains the rhythmic character of each. Although at times the music could be considered pastiche, the illusion is disrupted frequently with harmony that is more contemporary. Contrapuntal devices are used almost consistently throughout.
As suggested by the title, the music is tonal.


1 - Prelude

2 - Allemande

3 - Bouree


4 - Sarabande

5 - Gigue alla Fugue

6 - Pavanne


7 - Galliard

8 - chaconne


9 - Postlude

Adagio for Strings

Commisioned by Levine Andrade for the Tapestry Chamber Ensemble.



This piece is also tonal. A pensive and moving theme is contrasted with a theme for solo violin and cello. A quicker central section which develops the 2 themes leads to a climax on the first theme. A reprise of the opening music in varied form leads to an ethereal coda and ends on a soft, optimistic major chord.




Theme and Variations for String Orchestra



This piece is in a more progressive style. The theme is presented by a solo violin. There are 6 variations in total, each one exploring different aspects of the theme.




Concerto for Clarinet, Percussion and Strings


This piece is also in a more contemporary language. It is in 3 movements although movements 2 and 3 are joined together by a cadenza for the clarinet.

1st movement
2nd and 3rd movement
