program note
Vodka Meets a Martini is written with a laid-back, lounge feel over a slightly more complex ‘classical’ structure which repeats a 26-bar cycle five times. It is dedicated to Tim Davies and Kate Moran, whose names anagrammatically provided the title. It was written specifically for the signing of the register at their wedding and also exists as a separate self-contained piece of music.
