Mourne Passage (aka The Stream)
1st Prize, EPTA Competition 2014- Review by Camden Reeves
"A substantial and strong piece - lots of excellent ideas here, and very well executed.....There is a trace of the influence of Debussy, with the colourful added note harmonies. Very good use of pedal points, and the unusual harmonic and tonal twists are very effective."
3rd Prize, EPTA Competition 2015) - Review by Pamela Wedgwood
"Wow! What a great piece, and a true realization of the title. You captured the mood perfectly with some dynamic time and key changes. The time change to 6/8 worked really well and your syncopated rhythms were very effective .... A very good effort indeed. Well done - keep writing!"
Claude Debussy: "Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art."
Bela Bartok: "Competitions are for horses, not artists."
Joseph Haydn: "There was no one near to confuse me, so I was forced to become original."
Richard Wagner: "Imagination creates reality."
