Letters from the Front
I have recently been commissioned by New Zealand Symphony Orchestra to write a symphony for the Gallipoli Commemorations for 2015. This is a huge responsibility and will be approaching it with the utmost care. It will be for full orchestra with soprano and narrator and titled “Letters from the Front”. I plan to use letters to and from soldiers who were in Gallipoli, France and Belgium during WWI including those of my great-grandfather who was killed in the trenches.
