Concertinfouro was written as a surprise 40th birthday present for Alastair's wife, Claire, who is a clarinettist.

It was given a first performance just a few weeks later on Saturday 24th March 2012 by Bath Concertino with Claire playing the solo clarinet and the composer conducting. The recording was made in January 2015 at Angel Studios in London with Matthew Hunt performing the solo clarinet part. The Chamber Orchestra of London was lead by Janice Graham and Alastair again conducted.
