Product details

This brief work was commissioned by the dedicatees - Gerald Krug (conductor) and the Western Australia Arts Orchestra, the then orchestra for the Western Australia Opera, for inclusion in a concert by the orchestra.

As its name implies, the work is in two sections. The Image based on two thematic ideas is solemn, sometimes monolithic. It has been described as inhabiting a still and melancholy world, like a bleak landscape. Attempts are made to break the mood with
brighter colours and slivers of light without success, until the Refraction bends, distorts and combines the Image themes in music which is assertive, affectionate, even ardent - the Image as seen through a jocular prism.
