Composer, Jane Wells, has a catalogue of around fifty compositions. They range from half evening music-theatre, choral and orchestral pieces to short instrumental solos and duos and songs for choirs that are eminently programmable concert pieces. Or some of the latter may simply be just good to work on and enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
Her first pieces date from the mid-1970s when she also wrote music extensively in collaboration with choreographers for performance with dance.
Relay is a recent composition and was commisioned for performance by Britten Sinfonia musicians on the arrival of the Olympic torch in Norwich in July 2012. (Rehearsal time was very limited so the pieces had to be more or less instantly playable). The string quartet movement was one of a set of short pieces composed for this occasion and the movement lasts under 4 minutes
