Commissioned by Bloomsbury Trio
f.p. Bloomsbury Trio, St Magnus Martyr, London, November 2005
Honey Celebration celebrates honey. It also pays homage to (and borrows its title from) Tapies’ painting, Celebracio de la mel, and the exquisite lyric melos of Schubert (from whom its material derives). Its three sections run continuously and become progressively more intimate. It was written for the Bloomsbury Piano Trio and first performed by them in the church of St Magnus the Martyr, London, in November 2005.
