Sonatina for organ pedals (six feet)
The following write-up appeared in Music and Vision back in 2008, following a multi-player organ recital at Derby Cathedral:
MR. WALKER'S WORLD
Mr Walker and his adventures are the subject of a new series of poems for all the family, by Charles Luxford. Illustrated by Andrew Prewett, and with music by Adrian, Mr Walker hopes to hit the shelves before too long. Indeed, the first two e-books are now available from www.amazon.co.uk, for Kindle. They are without music, sadly, but Mr Walker hopes to get into the recording studio with a narrator and orchestra during 2012.
Utterly unreliable A to Z of music
Adrian's "Utterly Unreliable A-Z of Music" is now available, published by Kevin Mayhew Ltd at £9.99.
ADRIAN'S NAME BEING USED IN ONLINE SCAM. BEWARE
Adrian's name and private email address have been "purloined" to use, it seems, in some kind of lottery scam. If you get an email from someone purporting to be Adrian Vernon Fish, PLEASE IGNORE and DELETE IMMEDIATELY. If you can, please report such things to whoever is relevant.
Couperin for orchestra
Adrian's orchestration of Francois Couperin's lovely Messe pour les Couvents, is now available. Adrian has adhered as closely as is feasible, to the soundworld of a French organ. He even specifies the use of an ophicleide in preference to a tuba, in order to acknowledge the coarser sound of French pedal reeds. (Duration 35 min)
Several of Adrian's manuscripts have been lost over the years. You will see from the catalogue of works which ones are missing. If you should ever turn up a copy of these pieces, or know someone who has a copy, please let Adrian know.
Adrian's music and editions are published by
Cartoon by Kris
Thanks to Chris Burchell (Kris) for his cartoon. Adrian had a beard for a few years, but that was shaved off in October 2007, so he looks even more like the eejit above!
Rachmaninov for depression!
The above is an anagram of "Adrian Vernon Fish - composer." Whether Sergei causes or salves depression, is open to interpretation...... If you can better that, let me know!
