This work for orchestra and nine soloists is a personal reflection on the ANZAC phenomenon. The nine soloists, supported by the orchestra, may be seen as suggesting characters, moods, images, or memories, in dream-like references to confusion, nostalgia, ceremony and contradiction.
The work is in two parts, each having a number of continuous sections. Here they are, with (in brackets) the soloists featured.
Dawn (Trumpet, all soloists) ; Fearful (Violin, Cello) ; Thoughtful (Clarinet, Guitar) ; Apprehensive (Clarinet, Piano, Guitar) ; Nostalgic (Violin)
Authoritative (Trombone, Piano, Guitar, Trumpet) ; Bucolic (Flute, Cello) ; Fragmented (Cello, Violin) ; Chaotic (All soloists) ; Earthy (Marimba); Dusk (all soloists).
