Stephanie Cant writes
I had lived in Sussex for 25 years before I left to go to live in Durham in 1998. I had been a member of New Music Brighton from its inception and many of my compositions were performed at NMB concerts. Hoping to keep in touch with the group, I wrote to all members in the summer of 1999 with an invitation to compose a short piano piece for me which I would then include in a lunchtime concert.

During the subsequent year I received enough compositions. most of which were indeed newly written. to add up to a 50-minute recital. The performance of these works took place at a well ­attended concert at the Chapel Royal, Brighton in May 2001 with all the composers present. Following this concert, discussions began regarding a possible CD of these works. At the same time. a number of these piano pieces were chosen for a workshop at the Farnham Festival - New Music for Young People. This workshop, which I directed with the assistance of the composers. Took place at The Maltings. Farnham in March 2003. I was delighted to be invited to include the duet I composed for that occasion on this CD.
