Here is the recording of a new piece Two from Dr Suss. The piece is a setting of two sections of Matthew Welton’s wonderful long poem Dr Suss and was commissioned by Trio Atem. It’s scored for bass flute, low female voice and prepared cello. This is the first performance of the piece at the University of Manchester and I’m very grateful to Trio Atem for their skill and sincerity in preparing and performing this music.

Movement 2. ‘And I was feeling a little worried before you mentioned James Watt.’
