My first orchestral commission, in 1985, for the Cardiff Festival of Music, while I was an M.Mus student at University College, Cardiff.  Commissioned by the Cardiff Festival of Music in association with the Welsh Arts Council, the brief was to come up with a Waltonesque concert opener - it's for the listener to judge if I managed it.
