for: flute, cor anglais, clarinet, bassoon, trombone, violin

"As we listened in the foyer, surrounded by Sinfonietta soloists before the somewhat disappointing final concert, to the melodious, somewhat sixties sounds of Tim Parkinson's "untitled (winter 2002)", I reflected on how the state of composition in this country might have turned out if this ensemble had been prepared to take such risks thirty years ago. Perhaps much less of the more mainstream predictable stuff which the Sinfonietta feels obliged to offer on these occasions might have been written." Keith Potter, The Independent, 2nd May 2002
