Work Overview

In 2020, David Harvey offered me the opportunity to choose scores of my music to be published by the recently established TSO House, set up to publish Tasmanian compositions. Very recently, I thought why not a brand new work for string orchestra to mark the occasion? The result is Brevities. I set out to make five short, autonomous pieces, linked only by their contrasts, each one varied in tempo and mood from its predecessor. They each approximate two minutes in duration: Andante; Agitato; Con Affetto; Misterioso; Marcato. I dedicate them to Caroline Sharpen and David Harvey.
