About

Peter Hope is an English composer whose name is not well known to the public, but some of his music certainly is. A veteran of the light music genre, he has been a full-time composer and arranger for 50 years, working for many years with the BBC Concert Orchestra many of his arrangements becoming classics in their genre, also writing music for the marriage of the Crown Prince of Spain and many other public events. His theme tune for BBC TV news ran for over 11 years, known to practically every person in the UK.

Since 2000 he has concentrated on more serious and extended compositions, though retaining a commercial sense of approachable style. This album features four wind sonatas and two other works, performed by instrumentalists of high calibre and renown. All the works are receiving their premiere recording and one, A Walk with my Dog, Molly, is being considered as the music for an animated film based on the music itself.
