Composer's note: ' I was invited to LA and spent a few days there, meeting Ridley at the recording and going back with him to his studios off Sunset Bvd. where I met Kevin Reynolds who was interviewing Ridley for a featurette  called 'Duelling Directors', part of the DVD. We discussed the progress of 'The Duellists' over the years and turned over possible ideas for a large-scale opera or ballet for cinema
