PETER MAXWELL DAVIES: FAREWELL TO STROMNESS (GUITAR)

Instrument

Farewell to Stromness is a piano interlude from The Yellow Cake Revue, a sequence of cabaret-style numbers against uranium mining in the Orkney Islands. The Revue was first performed at the St Magnus Festival, Orkney, by Eleanor Bron, with the composer at the piano, in June 1980. This performance inspired Timothy Walker to transcribe Farewell to Stromness for solo Guitar. He performed it two days later in Kirkwall Cathedral as part of the same festival.
