These pieces started life as a solo piano composition called A Little Fall-ish! written in September 1997 for my friend Tobey in Cleveland, Ohio. This was orchestrated for the solo horn of Stephen Bell and first performed by him on BBC Radio 2 with the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Barry Wordsworth in October 1998. The other three movements were similarly broadcast over the next few months. I hope that the present reductions will lose little of the character of the originals and make the pieces available to more players.
