The idea for the concerto came about after a successful first performance of the Sonata for piccolo and piano that took place in The Goods Shed in my hometown of Tetbury in November 2018. What started off as a mere pipedream, well aware that few orchestras, if any, were desperately waiting for an opportunity to premiere such a novel concept, became a genuine ambition for me.
I set to work regardless of practicalities as soon as I didn’t have any other commitments and produced four movements within a year. When I began writing the music another triumphant performance of the sonata had meanwhile taken place in Amsterdam, followed later in the year by a CD recording, launched at the end of 2019. As the sonata’s fourth movement became a particular favourite of the musicians I pondered if a version with a light orchestral accompaniment couldn’t feature as the slow second movement. However, after finishing all four movements I started having second thoughts about it and decided to compose a new one in its place.
