Silvered Night was written to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One and serve as a memorial to all those affected by this war and the many conflicts that have followed. It was based on an earlier work for solo piano, a set of variations which was written in the shape of the Remembrance poppy, Papaver Rhoeas.
Silvered Night was recorded in 2019 by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and pianist Mark Bebbington, conducted by Hilary Davan Wetton. Release is expected in 2021; see the online brochure below for more details.
