Product details

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 set of performance parts

Difficulty: Advanced — Some divisi in upper strings.

Duration: 8 min.

Dedication note: Dedicated to Judith Harpur (partner d.1987)

Commissioned by Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra.

First performance by Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra, Carl Hammond — 4 Nov 90. Ravenswood Girls High School, Wahroonga, NSW

The form of the work, I think, recalls Alban Berg's Violin Concerto, particularly the climactic "death-blow" and final elegy.

This is a handwritten edition — it is not typeset.
