Commissioned by Richard Ingham to celebrate the Adolphe Sax bicentenary 2014, with funds from Creative Scotland

Written just before starting work on a ballet for Birmingham Royal Ballet with choreographer David Bintley, this short piece is one of a series of character sketches exploring facets of the main players in Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

The saxophone seems to embody the hybrid creature Caliban – half human half spirit – and the music is edgy and rhythmic. The central section shows a more reflective side: in spite of his abrasive and resentful nature, one of the most beautiful passages in the play is delivered by Caliban (‘the isle is full of noises’).
