Only that The Deep was written for EYMS, but I've not played it, as it was before my time! But that is all explained in the 4BR article. :D

YWDB have played, and come 2nd with A London Overture.

Lots of Cadenzas in the middle and a very fast vivo at the end. Written (near enough) in Ternary Form (ABA). With B being really fast, loud and flying fingers time.


It's a great piece.

Never heard of The Deep Before. Sounds like a Horror Movie! :O

As I understand it, it was written for the opening of the UK's first and only submarium which is in my 'adopted' home of Hull (well, I'm there about half the week). It's premiere was given by EYMS.

It sits on the confluence of the Rivers Hull and Humber, at a place called Sammy's Point.

I've never played the piece, but if it's anything like the building itself................

I'm told the piece doesn't smell quite as bad as Hull does though...
