I wrote Details while I was at college in 1977, following an emotional misunderstanding with a fellow musician at Westminster College …. We agreed it was “just details” and got on with life.

He performed it with me back then on violin and we were recorded at the Chapel there:

Since then I have written various instrumental settings on the theme.  The wind quintet was played by the Thalia Wind Quintet at the Royal Northern College of Music in 1997, but the the recording was unfortunately lost.
