Oy, for six clarinets and almglocken

My piece, "Oy", for six clarinets and almglocken, has been chosen as one of the winners of the BBC Proms Young Composers' Competition. Although I don't win any money, I get a few good commissions: there's a short fanfare piece being done at the Last Night, which will be written as a team by the winners of the competition (I'm a bit anxious about this, but more details will follow).

But more generally, its seems a really great opportunity for me to meet people, attempt to spread some of my hair-brained ideas, and maybe learn some things. I think this piece has probably the most radical instrumentation the competition has yet encountered, which is exciting.

For anyone who's interested in the piece, there a score, below.
