The Imaginary Museum
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
I. The World is a Window
II. Janacek’s Wells – (segue into)
IV. Forest Murmurs
V. A Song Before Dawn
“The Imaginary Museum is the title of a book by the French
cultural politician André Malraux. Malraux argues that, due
to the dispersal of great art around the world’s museums, it
is only in one’s mind or else in book form that it’s possible
to assemble a coherent collection of art nowadays.
I decided to take the piano – that most immobile of
instruments – on an imaginary journey to various locations,
whether pictorially inspired or not. The acoustics of these
virtual locations was as important to the sound of the music
as any evocation of terrain. In practice, both factors
engender changing musical relationships between piano
and orchestra. “

Babylonia Ziggurat. Starting at ground level, a staircase
winds up around a conical structure, decorated with passage
of visual narrative and imagery.
Gilbert’s duo for bass clarinet and marimba engages on a
similar journey, continuously climbing but also episodic.
Passages of wild virtuosic music are seperated by steady,
Colour-changes involving bass clarinet multiphonics and rich
chordal writing for the marimba are strongly featured.

Written for Sabine Mayer and the Alliage Quintett 2015 and subsequently recorded.
Scored for the seemingly unusual instrumentation of clarinet in A (doubling on C), saxophone quaret and piano, the spirit and symphonic character of the work is preserved. This unusual instrumentation also brings the opportunity to explore new colours within the ensemble.

Suite for flute solo, piano and string orchestra
• Composed in 6 contrasting movements
• Written in memory of a friend
• By former keyboard player of Deep Purple
Written in memory of Sir John Mortimer, To Notice Such Things is composed in 6 contrasting movements for flute and piano. Each movement of the work reflects an aspect of Mortimer’s personality.
Lord says of the piece, “I wanted to give the flute the job of speaking for John throughout the Suite; his laughter and his sighs, his wistfulness and occasional mild cantankerousness, his playfulness, and also the anguish and then the acceptance of his final days.”
Jon Lord is the former keyboard player for the band, Deep Purple. His work, To Notice Such Things also appears on a studio album of the same name, released in 2010.
