John BloodGZ102
Cello and piano | Duration: 20 minutes

Composed for cellist Nicolas Robinson, who persuaded the composer to visit Dungeness. The resulting piece, a cello sonata in all but name, portrays the sounds and colours of this amazing landscape. The rich textures abound in nautical reels and shanties, and the piece ends with a Presto agitato movement depicting the whirring turbines of the nuclear power station. The first performance was given by Nicolas Robinson (cello) and  John Blood (piano) on 10th October 2010, as part of Art in Romney Marsh 2010. A highly rewarding concert piece.
