He has been expanding his piece Ebbing Tides from the 3-minute work that was played at the workshop, and the finished work receives its world premiere at the Barbican Centre on Wednesday 14 December 2016, conducted by Fabien Gabel.

Throughout the centenary commemmorations of World War I we have been researching the history of the LSO and its musicians during the war years. Today, 100 years after his death while on active service, we remember trumpeter Sydney Moxon.
