Tinoco wrote Autumn Wind in 1998 following a commission by the Junior Academy of the Royal Academy of Music, in London. The work was inspired by the poems of Philip Larkin and had its first performance by the Junior Academy students.

The first professional performance was given in April 1999 by the Galliard Ensemble, who also recorded this work for two CDs released on Meridian and Deux-Elles. Click here and here to know more.
