Product details

The name Νεῖκος is an Ancient Greek word for 'strife' and is one half of the principle proposed by the philosopher Empedocles in 5th Century BCE, his balancing word being 'love'. This principle is key to Empedocles' cosmology and his cycle of natural forces, together with the four natural elements of earth, water, fire and air.

This orchestral work is one of several musical creations that were influenced by and composed during development of the cine-music-theatre work The Wife of Empedocles and which have now taken on their own identity.
