METAL was composed for the reopening of the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool in September 1995.

It is a short piece which is pretty celebratory in style. The title refers to the use of metal within the piece. It opens with untuned scaffolding being hit and as the piece progresses there is increased use of the RLPO’s four tuned ship’s bells.
