‘An Argyll Suite’

Instrumentation: String Trio

Dalriada was a Gaelic kingdom, which encompassed Argyll and Bute, part of Lochaber, and County Antrim (Ireland), in the 6th and 7th Centuries.

Duration: ca. 8 1/2 minutes

Kerrera Blues

This movement is based on the way I felt on leaving the small island of Kerrera, near Oban, after spending a beautiful warm, sunny afternoon there; I was sorry to go.

Toward

This is dedicated to John Maxwell Geddes, who passed away in September 2017, and who used to take a group of composers (of which I was one), to Castle Toward, on a retreat for weekends. I always think of it as a magical place and time; we improvised a ‘Lamont Lament’ one evening at the ruins of the old castle and I thought that one day I might like to write something to commemorate these occasions and say ‘thank you’ to John, who has been my teacher, mentor and friend.

Harbour Dreams

I have strong memories of spending time on summer family holidays, daydreaming, while fishing on the harbour wall in Carradale, in Kintyre.

Oliver; Glasgow, 11th October, 2017
