On 18 October 1958 Duke Ellington was presented to Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh at a private reception to mark the bicentenary of Leeds Festival. So inspired was Ellington by this meeting that he promised to compose a suite in honour of The Queen. Inspired by the beauty and majesty of nature, The Queen's Suite - one of Ellington's most beautiful works which he dedicated to HM The Queen - remained hidden from the public until after Ellington's death when it received its premiere in 1998 in Oldham, UK performed by the Bob Wilber Orchestra.
