These are pieces written for guitar by "Scottish" composers, Simon. I think the line-up is impressive too. But I would say that, being a Glasgow man.

Phillip Thorne deserves the tribute. He has commissioned more guitar pieces than anyone I know, which has helped feed composers, and also presented the guitar as a contemporary instrument to many thousands of audience members over the decades. He used to write a column for Guitar International in its heyday. He was also my teacher at the RSAMD, though I wouldn't hold that against him! If you are into these things, he also got a knighthood (or something similar) from the Queen. I've played all the pieces in the program before, except Winter Winds, and can attest to their high standing as compositions. Phillip, of course, gave their premiers.

I doubt Phill will read this, but if he does: Cheers, Phill! Sorry I can't be there, or better still, taking part. You've been an important presence in my life, and I wish you all the best for the future!

My schedule was giving me problems for this one, but I think I have arranged it so that I can attend. I shall pass on your good wishes, Rob.
