Work Overview

This pastorale in many ways describes the pastoral scenes in Tasmania and the surrounds of Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. The music is generally serene and dreamy, although there are some technical demands required of the soloist. The work has been influenced by composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams and Ernest Chausson (particularly their pieces for violin and orchestra) and also the Beethoven Violin Concerto. The music is a very personal expression and is thoroughly based on modern techniques. It uses a note row of E D A Bb C C# F# F Eb G Ab B with its many transpositions and inversions in addition to other more complex mutations. The work is very much an untroubled reverie for solo violin and orchestra.
