Work Overview

...like a Maelstrom (double concerto for piano, trumpet, and small orchestra) takes its title from the opening lines of a poem by Emily Dickinson, and is - as the title suggests - energetic and turbulent, providing a thorough workout for both soloists.
It was premiered in 2015 by Arcko Symphonic Ensemble under Timothy Phillips, featuring Peter Dumsday and Bruno Siketa. It is a work that is especially challenging for the soloists, presenting difficulties that both Peter and Bruno confronted and mastered with astonishing stamina and skill.
