GRAND PAS DE CINQ
for clarinet, violin, percussion, harp and piano (2018)

World premiere: King's College London, 3 February 2019. Lontano Ensemble was conducted by Odaline de la Martinez.

The grand pas de deux—or, indeed, de trois—forms the highpoint of many 19th-century ballets, with dance at its most virtuosic and aristocratic. While rather more wild than aristocratic, my music dances in figurations akin to arabesques, fouetes, and jetés. Overall, the tone is percussive and rhythmic throughout.
