Additional Information

Images of Trees was the first instrumental piece Liz Johnson, the composer, wrote as a Masters student at Birmingham Conservatoire. Inspiration was provided by a set of photographs of trees from her local park  and these were used to provide the framework for the music.

Each movement is focused on one image: the first, clefts and fissures of bark; the second, winter branches; the third, a single leaf.

It was through this piece she first met the Fitzwilliam Quartet when they performed Images of Trees as the winner of the Birmingham Chamber Music Society‚Äôs Composition Prize in 2001.
