Work Overview

The title of this work reflects the manner in which the music in each section gradually unfolds and 'emerges' from small embryonic ideas and cells of musical material. There is also a subtle suggestion of the word 'emergency', or perhaps in this case more correctly of 'emerging urgency' which, in the context of the work, reflects the fast paced energy and rhythmic momentum that dominates the music in the first and final
sections.
