This work is dedicated to Matthew Hindson. The title refers to the feeling of anticipation which one experiences before a long awaited event, meeting, reunion, publication, or such. In this case, the end result is a positive one.
The influence of "Penny Lane" by the Beatles, and "Killer Queen" by Queen, is evident. Inspiration was also drawn from musical theatre composers, Jason Robert Brown and Jason Howland, as well as from pop art. A fusion of Western art music and popular music is created as popular elements are forged into classical form, the result being performed by orchestral musicians, emulating the roles of synthesizers, electric guitars and drums.
Instrumentation: 2 violins, viola, cello, double bass.
Duration: 5 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Matthew Hindson
Written for: Sydney Symphony Fellows
Commission note: Written for the SSO Fellows as part of a joint project between the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the SSO and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
- Influenced by: Popular music
