Recording of ‘Disco Ball – Mountain Hare’

Recorded at the premiere on 22 January by Farnborough Symphony Orchestra. Listen here.

FSO is grateful to the sound engineer and producer, Haresh Patel, for recording the premiere live.

FSO performed Disco Ball – Mountain Hare in a Scottish themed concert that included Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Scottish Symphony.

Disco Ball – Mountain Hare was inspired by my research into Mountain Hares in the Cairngorm mountains, Scotland, and was supported by a Finzi Trust Scholarship. There is also a version for violin, cello, piano and clarinet. The title Disco Ball – Mountain Hare is shared by an extended travel essay I wrote about the research process called Composing with Hares. You can read extracts from that, and about the disco ball metaphor here.
