Kokoso: UK premiere 27 November 2021
I'm really excited to be performing my piece Kokoso alongside Richard Norris on organ at a concert on 27 November 2021. I'll be releasing a studio recording of the piece early 2022.
The inspiration came from a camel ride I took with my wife randomly in Idlicote, near where we live. Her camel was called Kokoso and something about the name just stuck. The owner was telling me about how they race camels and that got me thinking about an idea for a piece for soprano sax and organ, featuring lots of exotic sounding passages and encapsulating the thrill of a race.
