“I wrote Rhapsody in 2000 but it remained unperformed and so I gave a copy to John Orford the bassoonist and Professor at the Royal Academy of Music. Some years later, to my surprise and delight, he contacted me to ask if it could be the set piece for The Florence Woodbridge Prize. On the morning of Monday the 27th June 2016 I went to The Academy where I heard a succession of fine performances, the winner of the prize was David Bennett.” - Gordon Carr
