Notes

The title is from 'Alice in Wonderland'. In March 2015 Howard Blake was asked to provide music for Chapter 5 of the Lewis Carroll classic for which 14 different composers had been asked to provided separate unrelated scores to make up a complete concert work for violin, piano and narrator to be performed by Matthew Trusler and Ashley Vass. The complete project was called 'Wonderland'. One composer had dropped out and Howard was approached at the last minute to fill the gap. The music is revised from his 'Ernest and Celestine' music for a slide show composed in 1983, opus 327. Writer Louis de Bernieres provided a commentary to be spoken between the different pieces comprising 'Wonderland' and these texts were spoken by actress Maureen Lipman.
