FourScore was written in 1992 specifically for the Geelong Orchestral Composers Competition, where it was the winning work. As an ex-string player I wanted to write an energetic and up-tempo work based upon motor-type rhythms that would be both challenging and fun to play - it has been described as containing the energy and beauty of Vivaldi, but in a twentieth century idiom.
FourScore follows a largely ternary (three-part ABA) structure, with the opening material returning at its conclusion, altered for reasons of contrast.
Instrumentation: 4 violins.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Medium — High school level.
First performance: 7 Apr 93. Potts Hall, MLC School, Sydney
Won the Geelong Orchestral Composers' Competition, 1993.
