Williams is the most notable female composer from Wales, and she is the first British woman to score a feature film. This piece was commissioned by the BBC in Wales, who requested “something light-weight and entertaining.” Roper has held positions as the Associate Principal Oboe, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, NZ, and Associate Principal Oboe, Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, Spain. Sarah has recorded with OboeClassics, including Quartets for oboe and strings, digital tracks of Fantasy for oboe by Malcolm Arnold, Cuarteto con oboe and Silentium Amoris by Jesús Torres.
