Panic Stations!

I often compose on trains.  Something about the movement and dislocation is helpful.  This piece was forced on me by a train, or rather by an oversleeping member of our quartet who missed one.  We were on our way to Norwich to do a TV programme and faced with a bag full of music for four people and an ensemble of three, I sat in a corner and dashed this frantic little trio off, finishing it as we arrived.

It's fast and tricky, but quite fun if you play it lightly enough.  It's published by Neuschel.
