Product details

Five Scenes is a series of interconnected narrative vignettes. The odd numbered scenes play with musical tropes - the first scene takes on the character of a slightly wonky moto perpetuo; in the third, Classical evocations of hunting music have shifting alliances and allegiances between instruments as they form a murderous pack to eventually destroy the brassy interloper. Interspersed, the two even numbered scenes carry a more abstract narrative explored first in a duo, then in a trio. Finally, the fifth and final scene is musical tourism - my interpretation in Sydney of American prairie music in the style of 'Spanish' music written in Paris or, earlier, 'Turkish' music written in Vienna.
