He has just finished his new work, ‘Four Orchestral Pieces’ :

‘Four Orchestral Pieces’ is a body of work composed by Stephen Lee. Influences reflected in it include the rich, dark imagery of the art of Douglas Gordon and of Caravaggio, the melancholic vision and ‘eternal solitude’ of the poetry of James Thomson and Charles Baudelaire and the range and poignancy of the musicianship of Billy MacKenzie. Of the tracks, ‘Before the Autumn came’ (2 movements) was directly inspired by a Billy Mackenzie vocal melody. James Joyce’s ‘Eveline’ inspired ‘Db Concerto for strings & piano’ while two sources of inspiration underlie ‘Adagio for Piano & String Orchestra’ , the art of Caravaggio and the literature of Edgar Allen Poe. Stephen is currently seeking opportunities to bring his work before a wider audience. .
