RCM alumnus Charlotte Harding was commissioned in 2017 to compose Vi by the Love Music Trust Saxophone Ensemble. Vi is written for solo lead soprano, lead alto, and lead tenor saxophone with saxophone ensemble.
In 2020 Charlotte performed Vi at the annual University of Huddersfield Saxophone Day along with saxophonist Amy Green, members of the Quirk Saxophone Quartet, and a large saxophone ensemble, directed by Sarah Markham.
Following that successful collaboration and after consultation with Charlotte, Sarah created an online project based around Vi.
The online version of Vi has an audio backing track, with the saxophone ensemble parts being created remotely.
