Homespun Miniatures

Alex Woolf

Alex Woolf’s ‘Homespun Miniatures’ are a sequence of four short pieces written especially for some of the London Mozart Players musicians at the start of lockdown, and premiered as part of their online ‘At Home with LMP’ series. Alex was inspired to write music after he had taken part in an LMP outreach project when still a child, and was reunited with the orchestra a couple of years ago, and subsequently commissioned to write a fanfare for the orchestra’s 2019 gala concert for the reopening of the Fairfield Halls in Croydon.

Alex commented: ‘It is just such a brilliant thing, now that I am writing music professionally, to be able to do so with some of these very same musicians who are still united in this amazing ethos the LMP has, both as an orchestra but also as a group of people who really care about music-making and education and engagement with the community’.
