More Imaginary Folksongs for violin and orchestra is a companion piece to Stephen Pratt’s Three Imaginary Folksongs for clarinet and orchestra composed in 2017. Both were written to feature a member of the orchestra that commissioned the works – firstly, the principal clarinettist Jacqueline Thomas, and now the leader Leo Byrne. As before, the present pieces might be heard as coming from imaginary places, referencing elements of the styles of earlier folksong-inspired composers. The plaintive tone of the first folksong contrasts with the livelier, dance-like patterns of the second.
