Mrs Malcolm, Her Reel (Funky Freuchie)

Description

Mrs Malcolm was commissioned in 2004 by University of St Andrews, for jazz orchestra, but has since been performed in several different versions throughout Britain and Europe. It begins with a breathless reel which is supported by a funky, insistent bass line. The texture opens out for soloists with backing riff, before the reel makes a triumphant return. Interestingly Mrs Malcolm is a colleague of the composer at the University St Andrew's, and Freuchie is a village close to Edinburgh, renowned for its cricket team if not its funkiness.
