Diversion No.1 - Suite for Woodwind Orchestra – 2006 / Dectet - 2011

Originally composed in 2006 for the Brackley Woodwind Ensemble, this work was rewritten in 2011 as a Dectet. It comprises 7 movements, each of which could be played as a stand alone piece. The recordings below (created using Sibelius 7 Sounds) are of the Dectet version.

Score & parts are available for the following arrangements:

1 - Moderato

2 - Hare, Tortoise, Snail, Lians, Esiotrot, Erah. This piece uses the same theme played at three separate speeds (1, 1/2, 1/6) and is almost a perfect palindrome too!

3 - Scherzo

4 - Cadenza

5 - Waltz (also arranged for Alto or Tenor Saxophone - see "Lorna's Waltz")

6 - Lento in Baroque style

7 - Grande Finale
