“The Devil in the Clock’ is written for thirteen instruments: four wind, five strings, a couple of brass, marimba and harp. I’ve chosen some of the mellower, darker cousins of instruments (cor anglais, alto flute, double bassoon for instance) and opted for instruments which can blend together to play the long melody which threads its way through the piece.
