This suite of eleven very different pieces is a series of musical responses to travels in Scotland, Ireland, England, France and Malaysia.

"The work is written for soprano saxophone and accordion, a combination whose unique timbral qualities began to fascinate me when I started to work with Mary McCarthy. Both are reed instruments, with of course radically different playing methods. The whole project began as a one -off, with Postcard for Peter which was a Christmas present for Peter Stevenson. The sound world certainly seemed worth inhabiting, and I realised I would have an extensive set of pieces, which turned out to be based on travels I had recently made. Before long the project grew from pieces to be incorporated in our recitals, into an entire concert programme in its own right.
The pieces can be played in any order, singly or in any grouping. The music is inspired by many diverse disciplines in music - the whole, I hope, will just be heard as music, with no boundaries or categories. I suppose that the music and interpretation is strongly influenced by what Mary and I like playing, and listening to. Above all, Mary's accordion playing and musical philosophies have enabled me to write pieces of such divergent material." - Richard Ingham
