The 6th work realized by Colin Matthews from a short score draft of the first movement, Molto allegro, of an unfinished clarinet concerto, the Mazurka elegiaca for 2 pianos of 1941, and an unfinished orchestral sketch from the early 1940s, thought to be all that survives of a projected "Sonata for orchestra."
