I’ve just recently finished work on a “Little Suite for Strings” which was commissioned by Grant Bewick for his Derwent Strings. It is a simple work in six movments for chamber strings that collects together six melodies of distinct character into an expression of pathos, fun, melancholy, tenderness and excitement. I look forward to the premiere coming up a bit later on in 2012!

The Russian Philharmonic conducted by Alexey Osetrov perform two orchestral works by Matthew Dewey: The dramatic Orchestral Suite No.1, a three movement
Matthew Dewey’s Symphony No. 1 is to be recorded by the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra in Moscow this year. The piece, in three movements, was inspired by Tom Holloway’s play ‘Beyond the Neck’ which explores the lives of four characters who had all been affected in profoundly different ways by the Port Arthur massacre of 1996. The work was originally commissioned by Damien Holloway and was premièred at the Hobart Town Hall by the Hobart Chamber Orchestra in May of 2008.
